There are two routes, in each you'll need to replace 'developername'  
with your R-forge name.  I use the first too keep track all changes in  
the repository.

1) Check out the base repository

svn co svn+ssh://developername@svn.r-forge.r-project.org/svnroot/ 

you see a folder branches/newlabels
while the 'trunk' is in pkg/

2) To get the changes in another branch, you also switch the  
repository on your computer to the branch on the server...

cd ../phylobase/pkg
svn switch svn+ssh://developername@svn.r-forge.r-project.org/svnroot/ 

This will switch svn to the branch for updates AND commits.  This is  
useful if you've made many changes to the trunk and decide you'd like  
to add them as a branch.  You can make a new branch, then switch to it  
and commit.
