yeah, this is a problem with externals, though I'm not sure what the
solution is.

since you can't commit, you might try editing the external tag like this:

  $ cd /home/pgollucci/dev/src/modperl2
  $ svn propedit svn:externals .

and changing the https to http (if svn will let you).  then you would have a
locally modified externals which you couldn't commit.  alternatively, you
might be able to

  $ cd /home/pgollucci/dev/src/modperl2
  $ rm Apache-Test
  $ svn checkout

but I'm not sure how that will play with later updates.  really, I'm about
the last person who should be giving svn advice :)

https is required for developers to have commit access, but users just
interested in following along should just use http.  the problem is with the
use of externals.

it's probably a "feature" of externals, and I'm not sure if https support
would help you, since you're not authorized to use https anyway from (ie, you don't have a login).
