Well, great to hear that, but is there any way for the general public to
access this authoritative source? Such as SVN anonymous access? I didn't
find such a way. On


there is the mention of



  % svn co svn://comedy.dante.de/home/ctan/texcatalogue_svn
  svn: Can't connect to host 'comedy.dante.de': Connection timed out

and even (desperately trying):

  % svn co svn://dante.ctan.org/home/ctan/texcatalogue_svn
  svn: Can't connect to host 'dante.ctan.org': Connection timed out
