RE: How to get the module name as the top level folder in subversion checkout

Hi Ryan,

Thank you for your prompt response to my query.

My question was a bit different. I am trying to checkout the whole
folder containing trunk, branches and tags just for the verification

For example,
svn+ssh://<svn server name>/someproj

Now, ideally it should create "someproj" as a folder in my current
directory and then should download truck, branches and tags into
"someproj" folder. But the someproj folder does not get created, and the
trunk, branches etc get downloaded to my current directory.

I just want to know if this is the desired behavior of subversion or
some configuration issue.

There are no "modules" in a Subversion repository. There are only
directories and files.

Check out just the directory you want, and name it what you want. You
almost certainly do not want to check out trunk, all branches and all
tags. Instead, check out only the trunk, or only a specific branch,
or only a specific tag.

For example:

svn checkout http://www.example.org/svn/someproj/trunk someproj-trunk

(checks out someproj/trunk into a local directory someproj-trunk)
