I was just looking at Shtoom (the (brilliantly named) Python (yes, Python!) voice-over-IP client), and to get it, you need to check it out of Subversion. At work, I use TortoiseSVN in Windows Explorer to do Subversion stuff, but here all I needed was to get the files. So, off to Network in Nautilus: Connect to Server: pick WebDAV: add the server name (divmod.org) and the path (/svn/Shtoom/trunk/shtoom) and connect. That was it. How easy is that?
