There is no application included with the installer, just command
line tools you use from within the Terminal application.
Two native OS X GUI subversion apps are:
II.2 of the instructions refers to manually adding /usr/local/bin to
the path used by the Terminal application to find the "svn" command
line tool installed in /usr/local/bin. Assuming your shell is bash
(which is the default shell since 10.3 I think), you need to edit a
file called ".profile" in your home directory (it may not exist yet)
and add the following line to it:
Then, you should be able to type "svn --version" at the prompt in
Terminal and see something like this:
svn, version 1.2.3 (r15833)

Subversion is open source software, see http://subversion.tigris.org/

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:
* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV)
- handles 'http' scheme
- handles 'https' scheme
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network
- handles 'svn' scheme
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
- handles 'file' scheme

of your version will probably be different since I built mine myself
and didn't use the installer.
hope that helps,
