Use http protocol to checkout using SVN

Checking out the source of through Seneca network, I realized that if svn's protocol is used for "checkout" it takes forever to download the source. But if http is used instead, in less than an hour the source is checked out.

Most likely, it is the ITT's routing rules that causes this...

so, use:
svn co whatever
instead of
svn co svn://
