I'm sorry, but your assumption is incorrect. It's really the proxy which
is to blame here. The reason you can access the sourceforge repositories
is that you access them via https, not http. And https is encrypted, so
your proxy can't interfere. With http, your proxy can interfere and
reject DAV requests.

So either you have to configure your proxy to allow DAV requests, or use
https instead of http to access your repository.
