If you find yourself needing to export either an individual directory from a repos (say, as part of placing a project under version control) SVN’s
export command is the tool for the job.
Here’s the standard export syntax:
svn export /path/to/repos /target/directory
/target/directory doesn’t exist, SVN, ever accommodating, will create it for you before filling it with the non-version-controlled contents of the repos.
To export an individual directory from a repos, just add its name to the repos path:
svn export /path/to/repos/individual_directory /target/directory
