Thank you for this report. When I look at the emacswiki subversion I see 9523 files in the top level. This takes so long to process that viewvc times out processing them. That is the reason viewvc is timing out on the listing of those files.

svn ls svn:// | wc -l

That many files in a project will make viewing files with viewvc unsuitable and impossible.

I suggest that that to examine the source for that project to checkout a copy of the source and examine the result locally.

svn co svn://

Then simply browse the files locally.

After one month no response from maintainer.

This subversion repo is still inaccessible.
