There are multiple options:

        bk pull bk://
        cvs co linux-2.5

and Ben Collins is working on a bkSVN gateway (it's actually a
BK->CVS->SVN but whatever) so that will be an option soon as well. Huh,
while I'm thinking about it since we're hosting the CVS tree there is no
good reason not to host the SVN tree as well, I have to believe that SVN
uses less bandwidth than CVS (please, say it's so). Ben, send me or Davem
an ssh2 key and we'll set you up with an account on
This isn't some advertising ploy so feel free to make some DNS entry which
