Re: Error While Checking out Git Repository

I'm happy to try it with 1.7, too, but couldn't easily figure out the
correct checkout URL:

$ svn co https://github.com/NuGet/PoliteCaptcha.git
svn: E175009: Unable to connect to a repository at URL
'https://github.com/NuGet/PoliteCaptcha.git'
svn: E175009: XML parsing failed: (411 Length Required)
$

Ah!! That was with ra_serf. With ra_neon, I get the reported behavior:

$ svn co https://github.com/NuGet/PoliteCaptcha.git
A PoliteCaptcha.git/branches
A PoliteCaptcha.git/tags
A PoliteCaptcha.git/tags/v0.1
[...]
A PoliteCaptcha.git/tags/v0.1/Sample/Web.Release.config
A PoliteCaptcha.git/tags/v0.1/Sample/Web.config
A PoliteCaptcha.git/tags/v0.1/Sample/packages.config
svn: E235000: In file 'subversion/libsvn_wc/wc_db.c' line 1608: assertion
failed (SVN_IS_VALID_REVNUM(changed_rev))
Aborted
$

I'll take a peek with Neon's debugging enabled and see what I can see.

(But please do note that it appears GitHub appears to be incompatible with
Subversion clients which use the newer ra_serf library.)
