Svn, How Or Where Do You...

This page has a listing of SVN clients.

TortioseSVN has windows explorer additions, like right-click in explorer then “SVN Checkout”
it’s pretty nice!

I just learned something, if using TortiseSVN with google code:

Command-line access  
Use this command to anonymously check out the latest project source code:# Non-members may check out a read-only working copy anonymously over HTTP.  
svn checkout xrnx-read-only  

remove the “xrnx-read-only” it confuses TortiseSVN.

just use:
svn checkout

Questions, the main reason for starting the thread:

Is it better to not add the checkout to the scripting tools directory?

If it is okay to add the checkout to a scripting tools directory:
Where should the xrnx trunk checkout be put; so it can be accessed immediately from the scripting editor, not written over by beta installations, and not conflict with my own tools and file changes & updates?

SVN instructions are also written here in this readme:
