Any chance of a daily snapshot tarball?

There seem to be a lot of bug fixes in 0.7-stable, and also a lot of nice features coming along in 0.8pre-xxx… but some of us behind firewalls are not able to easily make use of these due to firewalls preventing svn checkout from working.

It would be nice to be able to download nightly tarball snapshots of these.

Many thanks for a great tool.

I am behind a firewall and am able to grab the trunk using TortoiseSVN. It supports using a proxy to access repositories. I then just copy the latest trunk to my HPUX machine using SAMBA when I want to install it.

The problem I have is that the only http clients allowed through the firewall are Internet Explorer (how braindead is that?!) and Netscape.

I've tried both tortoiseSVN on windows and the svn command line client on Unix— both fail with timeouts due to the proxy not proxy-ing…

Maybe the user agent string in SVN or tortoiseSVN can be changed to mimic IE's string? Had to do that for web sites that blocked non-IE browsers even though my browser was more standards compliant then IE(as most are now). If the proxy server only allows IE requests through, that may work.

Not a bad idea.

This request would be solved by #238.

Users having problems doing an "svn co" from the edgewall repository due to proxies or firewalls should access the repository via "https".
