I cannot recall the time, but I was also blacklisted recently after
merely browsing the subversion repository with what I consider pretty
normal speed (and I'm more on the slow spectrum compared to other
human beings :).

(Given the super lengthy paths in TeX Live, it's relatively easy to
click 10 times just to get to the desired folder, so I won't claim
that I only clicked three times.)

Pretty annoying in addition to the fact that some folders have
additional problems with too many subfolders and are somewhat
problematic to browse, and that some files are blacklisted for viewing
anyway ... but I'll probably start using your (Norbert's) git
repository once I get annoyed enough :)
