Xcode 4 Source Control Woes

I spent an age trying to work out why i couldn’t check out my code from a SVN REPO.

So turns out Xcode will not allow you to download from a SVN source that uses a untrusted SSL certificate.

You would get an error similar to: The certificate is not issued by a trusted authority. Use the
fingerprint to validate the certificate manually!

So how to work around this?

Open up a terminal window, and begin a manual attempt at downloading the SVN repo with something like this..

svn co https://........

you will then be prompted to reject, accept or permanently trust this certificate..

Hope this helps some poor soul..
