I'm sure we've tried the IPython import before and it failed. But I can't remember why, so let's try it again...

So, what is the problem with the svn import now? I can see that launchpad has been unable to access the IPython svn. Is there anything we can do to help? I know the svn site is a bit slow sometimes...

The import process is a bit naive in it's use of the network, and for an initial import requires that a great deal of connections succeed without any issues, and it seems that's connection to the network is just a bit too flaky for this to succeed. If you can get a repository dump, we can do the import from that and then just track the incremental updates from the real server (which is much more likely to succeed). Otherwise, we can just keep trying and hope we get a success eventually...
