SourceForge Subversion Problems

Corky and I are having problems on the CSnet machines when we are trying to check source out from Subversion:

% svn co https://drjava.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/drjava/trunk/drjava
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svnroot/drjava/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svnroot/drjava/!svn/vcc/default': SSL negotiation failed:
SSL error: decryption failed or bad record mac (https://drjava.svn.sourceforge.net)

Has anyone else encountered this? I can’t find any useful search results. However, when I do a checkout with http instead of https, it works (although I haven’t attempted to commit anything):

% svn co http://drjava.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/drjava/trunk/drjava
A    drjava/strip-license
A    drjava/LICENSE

Any advice is appreciated. I’m starting to think this is a SourceForge issue again, because I have been finding a handful of [1] SSL issues [2].

Judging by my experience in the last few months and all the support requests (“We’ve been making some changes, try again \*request closed\*”), SourceForge has turned into a steaming bucket of excrement. Someone please flush.

I do have some new pictures from today’s lecture about parsing and the extended visitor pattern [3], though. Explaining the extended visitor pattern with all the type parameters is more difficult than I thought. I’ve decided to spend another day on it.


It turned out that an upgrade to the latest OpenSSL and Subversion software on our side took care of the problem. I figured that would be a more sensible first attempt, rather than downgrading to an ancient version of OpenSSL, which is what SourceForge recommended.
