It looks like sourceforge is changing the svn urls. Are we using the new

announcement and as needed via Support Request when problems were reported.

access method (the one without the PROJECTNAME prefix for the hostname)
as of June 28.  Past that time, Subversion operations that use the old
URL scheme will no longer work.  You may change over any existing
Subversion checkouts you have by following the instructions detailed here:
