Hi veryone,

I am working on a site usinf SVN , making changes locally and uploading
them. Doing this mainly from the command line, but wanted to use SCPlugin
to do commits from a finder window. I got this warning:
This client is too old to work with working copy '/opt/local/www/site'.
You need
to get a newer Subversion client, or to downgrade this working copy.

I checked the server to find out their version of subversion and mine:

<title>401 Authorization Required</title>

svn --version

How can I revert the MacPorts client to 1.6.11 or something that makes
SCPlugin work again?
