Hi Samuel,

maintainers is just for the maintainers to discuss problems with infrastructure such as mailing lists or accounts.  All questions should go to users at einsteintoolkit.org.  I'm not sure what cactusmaint is for.

The problem is that the version of svn installed by xcode does not recognise the certificates.  I recommend to use a newer version of SVN, for example the one from macports.  In order to use the OS X optionlist in simfactory, you will need to install and use macports anyway.  

We should probably advertise this problem a bit more widely in the release notes.
