My basic point presented:

But a much cleaner solution is to confront IT with the fact that they need to do something with the server as it is basically broken.

Another stupid hackaround could be to setup a local old proxy/man in the middle https server that still accepts old tls connection, but also provides newer protocols and switch your working copy to this server instead.

Hello Subversion folks,

When I upgraded to the latest version of my Linux OS (Ubuntu 20.04) and installed Subversion 1.13.0 client, svn could no longer connect to our company's old subversion server via https.

$ svn --version
svn, version 1.13.0 (r1867053)
   compiled Mar 24 2020, 12:33:36 on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

  - with Cyrus SASL authentication

* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' scheme
* ra_serf : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV protocol using serf.
  - using serf 1.3.9 (compiled with 1.3.9)

$ svn update
Updating '.':
svn: E170013: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'https://something.something.com/repos/something/trunk'
svn: E120171: Error running context: An error occurred during SSL communication

Doing a checkout results in the same error.

The server (I am told) is running RHEL 6.10 with OpenSSL 1.0.1.

I understand that the old server is limited to using the old insecure TLSv1... I'm not IT though with no power to upgrade the server... and I just want to use our internal system. How do I configure the new svn to connect to the old server?
