*sigh* The cat is out of the bag.  That commit was no accident; it was
a plot by me to inflate my openhub stats. ;-)

Seriously, though, my apologies to those contributors underrepresented in
consequence of that commit.

It would also affect projects that replace trunk with a branch, with
«svnmucc rm trunk cp HEAD branches/2.0 trunk» (or, if the project devs
are unaware of svnmucc, by doing the same thing in two commits).

I would say that yes, dropping them a line to the effect of "You don't
handle certain histories correctly" would be worthwhile.  Do we have
a contact at ohloh/openhub/blackduck?

(I assume I ought to volunteer for writing that email, so I do.)
