OPTIONS is a method of the HTTP protocol, which Subversion uses (amongst
other things) to determine server capabilities.

Dropbox is not a Subversion server, so you can't use the client to
access the repository via HTTP(S) on Dropbox. What you can try to do is
set up a local directory that's mirrored on Dropbox, create the
repository ther, then use the file:// protocol to check out a working copy.

Be warned that I've never tried that, but apparently it works for some
