I tried following the directions on the web site -

Which states the following:

> The Subversion repository
can be accessed in several ways:
> * Anonymous, read-only access to
the Boost Subversion repository is available at [1]. To access the current Boost
development code, for instance, one would check out from [2]. For example, using the
command-line svn, one might use:
> svn co [3] boost-trunk
> On Windows,
TortoiseSVN [4] provides an
> easy-to-use, graphical interface to

However it didn't work. It started to, it got part way
through the download then asked for a password. Now that's all it does:

> ~/boost $ svn co boost-trunk
Authentication realm: Boost SVN repository Subversion Access
> Password
for 'user':
> svn: OPTIONS of
'': authorization failed: Could not
authenticate to server: rejected Basic challenge

What password is expected, and why is it not
listed on the web page in the download instructions?
