GetComponents hangs when "svn info" reports a certificate warning

Issue #752 closed
Ian Hinder created an issue

This is similar to, but not the same as, #135. The problem is that GetComponents runs "svn info" on a repository with https where SVN thinks the certificate is not valid:

MacBook-2:manifest (master) $ svn info --username hinder
Error validating server certificate for '':
 - The certificate is not issued by a trusted authority. Use the
   fingerprint to validate the certificate manually!
Certificate information:
 - Hostname:
 - Valid: from Thu, 05 Jan 2012 21:31:52 GMT until Fri, 04 Jan 2013 21:31:52 GMT
 - Issuer: lsu, edu
 - Fingerprint: d1:ea:8a:9a:a8:7d:a5:15:7a:56:22:27:99:30:96:d7:e4:38:0e:53
(R)eject, accept (t)emporarily or accept (p)ermanently?

This causes GetComponents to hang permanently with no indication of what is wrong. The solution to #135 was to add --non-interactive to the "svn update" command, and "svn info" also supports such an option. Should it be added here as well?
