No, you should not contact sourceforge. You should read the project
pages on sourceforge on how to check out the sourcecode.

And I will tell you this once again: _read the subversion book_!
You clearly don't understand what a branch and/or trunk is. That means
you have no idea what Subversion even is. For a subversion client, both
are the same. Only for you and the project, these are different.

And once again: the URL you try
(http://docbook.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/docbook/branches/xsl-epub/)
is the URL to ViewVC, *not* the URL to the repository (do you actually
read my answers?).

I can't believe I'm doing this: here's the page you have to read:
http://sourceforge.net/svn/?group_id=21935

Can you see the URL to the repository? It's
https://docbook.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/docbook and your branch would be
https://docbook.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/docbook/branches/xsl-epub
NOT
http://docbook.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/docbook/branches/xsl-epub/
