This is a usage question which belongs on users_at_subversion.apache.org.
dev@ is for the development of Subversion itself.

That said, your attitude sucks. You send a message bitching and
complaining about Subversion and then expect us to help you? Feh.

In your particular case, see the line that says "unexpected return
value". The MKCOL should have worked, but something apparently went
wrong with the SourceForge servers. Have you tried the operation

Followup questions should go to users@. Somebody there may have more
information for you.
