Agreed, that page is hard to find. The main download page doesn't point
to the nightly/trunk downloads at all (even though it does have a link
to source-code.html).

Perhaps we should just merge https://subversion.apache.org/source-code
into https://subversion.apache.org/download/? They both concern the
source code. The first section (which mainly references INSTALL)
definitely belongs in the download page, and the remaining sections ---
those pointing to trunk, nightlies, and viewvc --- could move to the
main download page into a <h1>Download development versions</h1> section
(which would carry a "This is not production quality" warning, similar
to the one in <http://subversion.apache.org/download/#pre-releases>).
