How to access the Simile Repository

After you have installed the SVN client on your machine, you need to create a local copy of the repositories. To do this type:

 svn checkout simile-widgets-read-only

Note that the repository uses the trunk/branches/tags layout, so if you checkout the root of the repository you end up with several copies of the same things, just in different versions.

Working on a complete repository or on just partial checkouts makes no difference since SVN stores metadata in a .svn directory alongside with the data (this replaces the CVS folders).
