I really think you need to sort this out with the OFBiz people. Find out
what version of svn they are using. Maybe it is very old.

Sympathy. If you have read access to their repository, AND you can get a
useable working copy, then you should just be able to run SVN update on
that WC to get the changes. That should be a lot less bandwidth than
grabbing a complete WC, as you only download the changes.

If the command line client can't do it, nor can TSVN.

Exactly right. It wasjust that if you want to make a direct comparison
between TSVN and the SVN client, they have to be using the same version.
But it looks like the problem is much deeper than that.

You would have to ask that on the subversion mailing list.
