Ah, I see the confusion; I've been talking about port net/svnup, not the
difference between full svn and svnlite, where I expect you are correct.
net/svnup is described as "A lightweight, dependency-free program to
pull source using the svn protocol." It does not use svn's directory
structure (eg the /usr/src/.svn/ tree) and is not useful for developers
wanting to push code back to the repository, among other svn features;
it's purely for updating local sources (or ports, though I use portsnap)
Hmm, its website <http://jcm.dsl.visi.com/freebsd/svnup/> is down just
lately; cc'ing the author/maintainer.
