A URL must begin with a protocol, like http (if you're serving via
apache) or svn (if you're serving via svnserve). Then "://" and then
the server name or IP. Then a slash, and then, depending on how you
have your server configured, maybe a path to the repository.

For example, The Subversion Repository is at this URL:
