I was trying to access my Sourceforge project via subversion and I got the following error:

Could not resolve hostname `': The requested name is valid and was found in the database, but it does not have the correct associated data being resolved for. (

Then I figured out that they changed how to access the svn repository.

The Subversion doc says it was changed Nov 2006. I guessed they just recently disabled the old method of accessing it.

Run 'svn info' at the root of the repository content, it should display a line that appears similar to: URL:
Run the following command at the root of the working copy: svn switch --relocate

So, I ran this command to fix it for my project:

svn switch --relocate

Now subversion works again.
