Now, I'm exclusively a non-Windows person, so (for the moment), I am simply
going to point you towards TortoiseSVN, a Windows GUI client for working with
Subversion. The online documentation is pretty good.


You can ignore anything about setting up a repository (since you are only
accessing one that already exists). So start with "Checking Out a Working Copy".
The URL for the trunk of scipy is this:


If you need some more conceptual documentation on how Subversion does things or
what some of the terms mean, a good (and free) book on Subversion itself if
_Version Control with Subversion_.
