we have a 24h maintenance slot caused by our ISP provider as of this Friday 4pm local time[1]. From then on throughout the weekend would be fine. I will send a message to dev that SVN will be back up as of Monday morning local time[2], that should give you all the time that you need. 

If this does not work for you, no problem, just let me know.

Thanks a lot and best regards,
