[R-pkg-devel] can't commit changes to a package on R-Forge

I was given admin access to an R package developed on R-Forge, which I have not used before. I installed a command line svn client, checked out the package
>svn checkout svn://geobosh@svn.r-forge.r-project.org/svnroot/fints/

update, etc works fine, until I try to commit the changes:

>svn commit -m "update by Georgi"
svn: E170001: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: E170001: Authorization failed

The commit command doesn't ask me for username/password and all my attempts were in vain. Google search finds similar queries but the answers didn't help.

I can't find any way to make it ask me for credentials and will appreciate any help.
