Capistrano: Subversion asks for password


When deploying a Ruby on Rails application using Capistrano and the command rake deploy, you get an error message similar to this:

** [out ::] Authentication realm: dev
** [out ::] Password for ‘hasse’:
** [out ::] subversion is asking for a password
** [out ::] Authentication realm: dev
** [out ::] Username:


Solution from:

This is a Capistrano gotcha. One needs to make sure the account can access the Subversion repository.
Log into the application server and check out the repository into a temp directory. For example:

$> cd ~/some/temp/dir
$> svn co
