The certificates for *.apache.org cites were updated month ago. There
was e-mail "New SSL certificate for svn.apache.org" on the committers
mailing list on January 6th. A forwarded copy can be seen here:

The fingerprint that you are citing is a valid one. It is mentioned here:


I do not observe any problems (TSVN 1.7.5, WinXP SP3).
I think that maybe your OS does not trust the root certificate used by
Thawte Inc.? Do you have problems browsing www.apache.org through
