Solving checkout problems with svn repositories

Potentially you can have problems when checking out a large svn repository, if on sever side mod_dav is used. The SVN client might fail wiht the error message "Could not read response body: Secure connection truncated" or "Could not read response body: Connection reset by peer".

To fix this issue edit your subversion server file located at "~/.subversion/servers" on linux or "cd %LOCALAPPDATA%\Subversion\servers" on Windows.

Simply add extremly large timeout value

[global]
http-timeout = 6000
