As Georg said, looks like you did a read-only checkout.  It /may/
(can't recall for sure, but think so) get you unstuck to do:

svn switch --relocate \
    http://svn.python.org/projects/python/branches/release25-maint \

from your checkout directory.  If that works, it will go fast; if not,
start over with an svn+ssh checkout.
