svn Exporting the versioned data (plain download)


If you want to get the versioned project's data, but you don't need any of the version control capabilities offered by Subversion, you could run svn export <URL> command. Here is an example:

$ svn export

As a result, you will get the project's data export, but unlike with a working copy, you won't be able to run svn commands on it. The export is just a plain download of the data.

If some time later you'd want to convert the downloaded data to a fully-functional working copy, run svn checkout <URL> to the directory where you ran the export to.
