+    <p>[20 May] <strong>The X Strike Force Subversion repository experienced some brief downtime and has been upgraded
+    to Subversion 1.0.3, a security release.</strong>  Client/server compatibility is not affected, so people using
+    earlier versions of Subversion to connect to the repository should experience no problems, but I strongly urge
+    fellow SVN repository administrators to restrict access to their SVN repositories until they can install the fix.
+    Information about the <a href="http://security.e-matters.de/advisories/082004.html";>vulnerability</a> is available,
+    and updated packages are entering <a href="http://incoming.debian.org/";><code>incoming.debian.org</code></a> as I
+    write this.  <address>branden</address></p>

     commit of 2003-10-08 deleted and dialed back to the safe revisions as necessary, has been prepared, and is available
