It was me who has been struggling with cloning Cocoon's repository and constantly hitting
mod_dontdothat. I'm quite surprised by your saying that tweaking --log-window-size can make

mod_dontdothat happy.

Has been anyone successful with cloning from svn.eu.apache.org? What was your setting?


As I previously said at @infra I'm not that much interested in discussions with [dSCM] tag
even if 
they are enjoyable to read from time to time. I think that we should focus on _doing something_
my choice is to let existing Apache committers to try out dSCM tools in a full manner.
I would rather prefer seeing some actions leading to establishing standard procedure for existing

committers letting them clone their favorite repositories without pain I'm experiencing now.

This would at least allow people to formulate their opinions basing on a real research.

(andd of course: infra is busy with higher-priority tasks so my wish is not intended to be
right away)

Best regards,
