Lets assume an anonymous user wants to check out a Subversion repository. Assuming the repository has been laid out according to the recommendations in How to Organize a Subversion Repository, the following command would check out the main trunk of project1 located in the FOO repository using the anonymous svnserve access method:

svn co svn://svn.FOO.codehaus.org/FOO/scm/project1/trunk

If you wanted to check out a specific branch of project1, the following command could be used:

svn co svn://svn.FOO.codehaus.org/FOO/scm/project1/branches/somebranch

It is important to note that when using the anonymous svnserve access method (svn protocol identifier) that you do not include /home/projects when specifying the repository path. This is unlike the authenticated svnserve access method.
