It seems that we have a link to the external repository that is not public.

For now, as a workaround I can suggest you to check out just the COD
data directories:

> cd cod

> svn cleanup 

this should remove all directories that contain experimental code and
leave you with just cif/, hkl/, mysql/ and smi/ directories that contain
the actual COD data. The 'svn update' command would then update only the
directories that you have checked out, and leave out the rest.

You can always check out additional directories later of you need them.

The 'svn cleanup' should free some of your disk space as well, but yes,
COD has grown larger – 450 thousand records, and that takes some space.

If you a short of disk space you can make a sparse Subversion checkout
and have just those directories that you need. For example, if you run:

cd cod/cif/1
svn up --set-depth empty 00
svn cleanup

then the contents of the directory '00/' will be removed from your local
working copy. You can restore it later using commands:

cd cod/cif/1
svn up --set-depth infinity 00

Please check the "Version control with Subversion" book for details.

Hope this helps,
