I've been trying to download the LJ tree from the subversion repository and it keeps aborting. This is the scenario:

I used this command:

svn co livejournal

And this is the error:
A livejournal/htdocs/img/blackdot.gif
A livejournal/htdocs/img/biography.gif
A livejournal/htdocs/img/arrow-friendof.gif
A livejournal/htdocs/img/delcomment.gif
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/livejournal/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: REPORT of '/svn/livejournal/!svn/vcc/default': 200 OK (
rachel:cvs localadmin$

Is there any other way to check out the LJ tree?

ljcomint directory required by ljcom stuff?

When trying to update ljcom code (or run, period), the ljcomint warning always comes up:
Subversion directory 'ljcomint' doesn't exist under /home/lj/cvs. Re-run vcv with --checkout for me to automatically get it for you.
Running that including the path to the multicvs.conf file doesn't help any. I thought adding the conditional question mark after ljcomint filenames in my multicvs-local.conf would do it, but no joy. Ideas?

The ljcom checkout is purely a local dev install - nothing sinister or for production site use. :)
