I'm also on the ipython list. :-) For the record,

1. This works (https):
svn co https://svn.scipy.org/svn/numpy/trunk

2. These won't (plain http):
svn co http://svn.scipy.org/svn/numpy/trunk
svn co http://ipython.scipy.org/svn/ipython/trunk

Same error message "svn: REPORT request failed ..."
after a lengthy period (a few minutes).

3. This (https) prompts for a password
svn co https://ipython.scipy.org/svn/ipython/trunk

The only difference that I can see is the host name where numpy/scipy
use svn.scipy.org and ipython uses ipython.scipy.org.

Ya, I've asked our system admin to look at the FAQ and their reply was
that these are not blocked.
