Hi Steven,

I apologize for the late response. Here's the command I issued from
inside a cron script:

        svn co

Due to internal changes, it seems that I'm no longer able to run the
above command from a (non-interactive) cron script (worked fine until
Thursday evening MST). Sadly, it (http) also fails interactively so
my options are limited. I did try using https but, while that works
interactively, it also fails from a cron script. I'm hoping that
Monday I can find a way to continue to contribute to Boost though
right now I'm not optimistic. I have not yet tried specifying my
Boost ( username and password as arguments to svn though
I'll give that a try soon.

Thanks again for your help with the results reporting Steven, I really
appreciate you stepping up on short notice.
