to checkout whole lot:

svn checkout

You'll need to accept the SSL key as it's self signed. A web frontend is available at

General work practice:

  • svn update - to get any changes
    • note this only works from your current dir down
  • work on your checkout, when something works
  • svn commit - submit your changes and make sure to add a comment
    • note that documents or PCBs could be committed after a chunk is done
    • only commit source code not binaries or #eagle files
  • Other useful commands
    • svn add newnamenevercheckedinbefore
    • svn rm fileIcheckedinaccidentally
    • svn cp <source> <dest> # This copies a file from one place to another in the svn and keeps all version history
    • svn mv <source> <dest> # As copy but moves it
    • svn status # shows any outstanding modifications and files not yet added to the repo
