svn co --username=jdh2358 --password=mypass https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/matplotlib/trunk/matplotlib

I was just wondering what the recommended check-out command
for "test-users" would be. With
  svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/matplotlib/trunk matplotlib

I get the whole tree:
  56K ./.svn
  280K ./CVSROOT
  69M ./course
  31M ./htdocs
  50M ./matplotlib
  194M ./toolkits
  39M ./users_guide
which is about 381 MB...

The answer seems to be this one:
  svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/matplotlib/trunk/matplotlib \
       matplotlib

Best, Arnd

P.S. For the above command I get the following:

Error validating server certificate for 'https://svn.sourceforge.net:443':

   fingerprint to validate the certificate manually!
