I would like to make a bug fix to the oligoClasses release.  I checked out a working copy of the release using the --username and --password options as suggested in the previous thread appended.  However,  I get the same error:

svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to CHECKOUT request for '/bioconductor/!svn/ver/50294/branches/RELEASE_2_7/madman/Rpacks/oligoClasses/DESCRIPTION'

any suggestions?  Thanks-
