any clue?

i also downloaded subversion-r1537.tar.gz (in addition to
svn-win32-r1650.zip that i talked about in previous e-mail) but could n't
find any file with ~/.subversion/proxies name (pl. see below). Also, what to
do in case of pre-compiled win binary files.

Thanks.

How do I access a repository through a proxy?
First, edit your ~/.subversion/proxies configuration file to indicate which
proxy to use. There are comments in the file explaining how to do this. If
you don't have that file, get the latest Subversion client and run any
command; this will cause the configuration directory and template files to
be created.

Next, you need to make sure the proxy server itself supports all the HTTP
methods Subversion uses. Some proxy servers do not support these methods by
default: PROPFIND, REPORT, MERGE, MKACTIVITY, CHECKOUT. In general, solving
this depends on the particular proxy software. For Squid, the config option
is

   # TAG: extension_methods
   # Squid only knows about standardized HTTP request methods.
   # You can add up to 20 additional "extension" methods here.
   #
   #Default:
   # none
   extension_methods REPORT MERGE MKACTIVITY CHECKOUT

(Squid 2.4 and later already knows about PROPFIND.)

It's on the FAQ page, although it's becoming a frequent enough one that I'm
starting to think we should change the error string to:

"Perhaps you have a proxy which won't allow DAV methods through. Please
consult http://subversion.tigris.org/project_faq.html for more details."
