I know you are some hours ahead at your side of the marble, but that counts also for the repository...?

r2528 and r2529 should be all there is.

hmm, svn-packages should always be from trunk, not from a branch, IMO.
as the svn-packages are usually snapshots of a moving target, they should have an odd version number, marking the "more or less unstable" development status.
otherwise it would be a bugfix release (or preliminary packages for one); unless someone decides to develop new features for a released branch).
