[rspec-users] Installing plugins without svn:// access

Hi George,
I have the same problem. I've repeatedly asked for svn access from my
corporate masters, and just as repeatedly been knocked back :(

1. run ssh on your home box on port 443 (https)
2. get http://www.agroman.net/corkscrew/
3. ssh to home (using corkscrew)
4. svn export svn://.../rspec_on_rails
5. tar jcvf rspec_on_rails.tar.bz2
6. scp lachie at homebox:rspec_on_rails.tar.bz2 . (using corkscrew)

Yes, it really sucks.
Scott, an http mirror would rock, or it could be mirrored at google
code, using their http-viewable svn repos.

Even an automatically created tarball of trunk in rubyforge would be better.
