Still applies. As a matter of fact because so many people who don't
read -dev and -commits were trying to enable it when using SVN, Daniel
made it so it can /only/ be enabled explicitly:

Oh, and BTW, this is exactly why SVN users are asked to subscribe to
/and read/ the -dev and -commits lists.
And, if you're the type who likes to "preview" the next version (i.e.
compiling SVN now so you can see what 0.20 will be like), that means you
should be reading the lists during the entire development of the next
version (i.e. from the point 0.19 is released until 0.20 is released).
If that's too much work for you, just wait until the next version is
released by your packager...
