That's right. That's just the repository browser; it is not the URL of the
repository. Unfortunately, the current front page of the Trac is misleading. The
actual repository is here:
In order to check out pymat, for example, you would issue this command:
$ svn co http://svn.scipy.org/svn/scikits/trunk/pymat ./pymat
That second argument is optional; it's just what you want the checkout directory
to be named. It defaults to the last part of the URL.

The usual process is to make the target directory first:
$ svn mkdir http://svn.scipy.org/svn/scikits/trunk/openopt
Then check out the empty directory:
$ svn co http://svn.scipy.org/svn/scikits/trunk/openopt openopt
Now copy over or create all of the files into that directory:
$ cd openopt
$ cp -R ~/src/OpenOpt/* .
Tell SVN to start tracking all of those files (this will add all of the files
and directories recursively):
$ svn add *
Make your first checkin:
$ svn ci -m "Initial checkin of the openopt package."
