Attempting to use the Git Subversion Bridge Against the Latest Subversion Client yields the following error: Command: Update
Updating: S:\My Downloads\Code\GitHub\ManipulativeReplacer from https://github.com/aolszowka/ManipulativeReplacer/trunk
Error: Unable to connect to a repository at URL

Error: not support the HTTP/DAV protocol
Completed!: This issue is poping up in various Subversion Communities as Developers Upgrade: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/tortoisesvn/qaJQ_K9Wbb8 The root cause is that GitHub has a non-compliant Subversion Server as described here: https://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/subversion-users/201811.mbox/%3Cba7c96e5-8a04-e676-9ee7-02357aeb3118%40apache.org%3E The relevent portions of the above post: The root cause is that GitHub does not implement Subversion's HTTP/DAV
In 1.11, the Subversion client has become stricter about the server
requirements (see: https://svn.apache.org/r1825302). Specifically, we
require that the server sends DAV response headers to the OPTIONS
request, which we use for capability negotiation. Here's an example of a
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Sun, 04 Nov 2018 15:40:24 GMT
Server: Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu)
The GitHub server does not return any DAV: header for the OPTIONS
request, so the response is considered incorrect. I suggest sending a
bug report to GitHub; the attached script can be used to simulate
Subversion's OPTIONS request.
In the meantime, staying with 1.10.x appears to be the only option if
you have to use GitHub's SVN protocol. Is this issue being publically tracked by GitHub Development anywhere? Support's answer is very generic: Thanks for writing in to GitHub Support and sorry you have experienced this problem.
This error is occurring when using v1.11 of SVN with GitHub. Our engineers are currently working on supporting SVN v1.11. We'll let you know when that support is available.
In the meantime you'll need to use an older version in order to connect with GitHub. Thank you
