How to connect to svn reposity in anonymous way (in a simple user’s terminal)

At this time you can connect on the developpement reposity version (please pay attention to the fact that the SVN reposity is not guaranteed to work as it concerns a version of EKD constantly changing, but at the same time it is the last release of the software version):

svn checkout http://svn.codingteam.net/ekd/trunk ekd

This developpement reposity version includes the last gadghet or fonctions of EKD. It is a developpement version constantly changing, mais we do our best to keep it as stable as possible.

After you’ve dont this, it’s not necessary to do this command again … except if the ekd folder is erased by accident.
