If you're going through svn as setup by release engineering, you will
have to wait a long time.  Unfortunately, that is setup so it can take

What you really need is patience while Jon fixes the real issue:
direct access to a shared repository.  Unfortunately, the path is
blocked with obstacles surprisingly neither of technical nor legal
