There may be some temporary problem, but I have committed several times this 

I recently had a similar problem, and it turned out to be that Source Forge 
had expired my password -- a bit of a surprise!  If I remember right, I had 
to log into the main SF site and change it there, then I had to manually 
enter the new password on my next SVN commit.

I just checked your SF status as a "member" of the Bacula project and 
everything seems to be perfectly in order for having write permission to the 

If that does not help, please let me know and please file a trouble report 
with Source Forge (they won't let me do it for you).  Don't hesitate to send 
me a patch. I will apply it and any others until we get this problem cleared 

Best regards,
