All I can say is try it again. I get a similar error from Eclipse every so often
and if I try it again 30 seconds later, it usually works.

If it persists for a substantial period, then fire off an email to Jim Manico,
<jim.manico at owasp.org>.

BTW, Jim said something about building a new ESAPI 2.0 release candidate
tonight so that might be the problem as well. He may have the SVN repository
temporarily locked or something.
