Thanks very much. However no luck. :-( I now got this error

> svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/scipy_core/branches/newcore': 405 Method Not Allowed (https://svn.scipy.org)

with the suggested workaround. I guess I'll learn a bit about svn and
may be have to take it up with our system admin. In the mean time, is
CVS still available?

BTW, perhaps it might help people like me who are not familiar with svn
by putting this tip somethere in the download page.

Thanks again,
ST
