I get the same on OS X with svn 1.8.9.
Note that it is a user error to attempt to check out the root of a repository. Instead, check out the trunk or the specific branch or tag you want. Perhaps you're just checking out the immediates so that you can later get the specific tags or branches you want; that's probably ok.
It may be relevant to know that you are not talking to a Subversion repository on a Subversion server; you're talking to a git repository, served using a Subversion translator written by the developers at github. As such, this may well be a bug in their translator that you need to report to them. I tried a couple other github repositories and got the same error.
