Re: how to download sourceforge branch read-only

So am I to understand that Tortoise SVN does not provide this
capacity?

Although my question may have to do with this epub project, I actually
have the same question as it pertains to another sourceforge project.
Maybe I should contact the people at sourceforge? The problem is that
I cannot make sense of the ViewVC view provided.

Maybe I'll look around for a mailing list that is able to answer more
general subversion questions.
