3.3. Checking Out a Copy

A download of a working copy from the repository is called a checkout, and done with svn checkout. This example checks out a copy of the latest version (head) of the main documentation tree:

% svn checkout https://svn.FreeBSD.org/doc/head ~/doc

A checkout of the source code to work on manual pages is very similar:

% svn checkout https://svn.FreeBSD.org/base/head ~/src

All FreeBSD documents are available for download at https://download.freebsd.org/ftp/doc/

Questions that are not answered by the documentation may be sent to <freebsd-questions@FreeBSD.org>.
