It is a separate step, but it's not required.

You can access a Subversion in all sorts of different ways,
most of which involve some concept of "server".

However, using a "file:" URL to access the repository means
that the Subversion "client" process actually works directly
with the repository files. This means that the client binary
must know about the on-disk format (Berkeley or FSFS), which
is irrelevant for remote access.

While I'm not *that* new to Subversion, that's not to
say that I actually know what I'm talking about. :-p

If I've explained the above poorly (or wrongly!),
I'm more than happy to be corrected.
