That is correct. When you do a checkout you are making a local working copy
of the exact same structure that is in the repository. If you checkout
'project' from your repository you will get everything underneath it,
including branches and tags.

The normal course of action is just to checkout 'project/trunk' from the
repository so you only get the main development line. If you need to switch
to a branch or tag to do something, use 'Switch' from the context menu.
