Problem with checking out a repository

From: Art Haas <ahaas_at_airmail.net>

I'm the developer of PythonCAD and I've been making a copy of my
Subversion repository available at the following URL:


I heard today from someone who could not check out files from the repo,
and I'm finding that I can't do it as well. But, I can connect to the
repository and list the files without problem, so the repo is accessible
over the internet ...

$ svn ls http://subversion.pythoncad.org:9000/svn/pythoncad/trunk

When trying to check out the repository subversion connects to the
remote repository and reports that the checkout gets the latest
revision, but nothing actually makes it to my machine here ...

$ svn checkout http://subversion.pythoncad.org:9000/svn/pythoncad/trunk pycad_checkout
Checked out revision 570.
$ cd pycad_checkout
$ ls -a
. .. .svn

There should have been lots of printout indicating the files were being
copied to my new pycad_checkout directory.

Several months ago I checked the remote repository out and have been
running 'svn update' from within that checked out directory without any
problem. My local changes get sent to the remote repo, and 'svn update'
brings them back. This setup was my way of checking that the changes had
made it to the remote repo and that people could get them.

I'm locally running an svn binary at 0.24.2+ (built on June 19), the
remote repo is several revisions older - I don't recall which one but it
wouldn't surprise me if it was a 0.1X release. I'm suspecting that the
problem is due to the old release on the remote machine talking to the
new release on my machine. I no longer have an older release to try the
checkout with.

If someone has an older release would they mind trying to check out the
repo? After a bit of Googling I didn't hit any links that gave clues
about problems checkout out repositories with different versions of
subversion so I'm sending this.

Upgrading the remote machine's subverion binaries is something I want to
see done, but as the machine is a friends I can't just do it at my own

Thanks in advance for any clues/suggestions/remedies.
