This failure occured on subversion 1.4 on Windows - but I am
behind a strict firewall and proxy. It is possible that webdav
is not fully supported here. I will try later with a linux boxen.

While pulling my hair out about subversion last night, I did
management to find out something very useful, I think.

It is possible to use rsync to make a direct backup of our
subversion archive at SourceForge using the following commands:

  $ export
  $ mkdir -p ~/repo/axiom/branches
  $ rsync -v -a rsync-svn-a::svn/axiom/* ~/repo/axiom/branches


Then you can checkout a copy of the souces directly from this
local mirror!

  $ cd ~
  $ pwd
  $ svn info file:///home/page/repo/axiom/branches
  $ svn co file:///home/page/repo/axiom/branches build.improvements

It's fast! because rsync uses a very efficient network protocol
and file:// access is just local.

Please give it a try and let me know if it works for you. 

Bill Page.
