Mmh, it seems like the problem is with Frederic's setup, if I understand this 


which says:

What does 'REPORT request failed' mean?

When I try to check out a subversion repository

 > svn co http://scm.sipfoundry.org/rep/project/main project

I get an error like:

svn: REPORT request failed on '/rep/project/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: REPORT of '/rep/project/!svn/vcc/default': 400 Bad Request 

You are behind a web proxy that is not passing the WebDAV methods that 
subversion uses. You can work around the problem by using SSL to hide what 
you're doing from the proxy:

 > svn co https://scm.sipfoundry.org/rep/project/main project

Frederic, can it be that you are behind such a proxy?  Unfortunately the 
ipython server is not setup to serve SVN over SSL, it seems.  I may try to ask 
the admin for that, but I have no idea if their infrastructure is set for it 
at all.  Can you try tweaks to your proxy side of things?
