A good set of corrections. There is just one with which I disagree, where you were changing "which" to "that" when the meaning is restrictive:

In this case the meaning is not restrictive. We are talking about _the_ only repository at that address, which does hold the Subversion source code, so "which" was correct. Perhaps it should have a comma before "which" to make it clearer.

If you agree, I would be glad to commit the rest of this patch for you.
