Based on your original email, the SSH tunnel is working because you
can run "svn list https://.....".  The problem is the subversion
configuration, which needs to be pointed to "localhost:2588" instead
of "subversion.server.gov", which does not exist.  Can't help with how
to do that though, I don't use subversion anymore (I use git now).
Perhaps someone still using svn can add more detail?
