For those who would like to use SVN but having trouble to find a simple tutorial, please have a look at Bambang Purnomosidi's blog site where he wrote a simple tutorial for day-to-day operation with SVN. He's a lecture in STMIK AKAKOM Jogja and he's very interested in GNU/Linux and UNIX. He also uses FreeBSD in his laptop and used it for his daily work. I met him when we both became the speakers in an Install Fest event in STMIK AKAKOM which was held last year along with Iwan Setiawan, one of Jogja Linux User Group member.
He also maintains some other blogs, such as his Java blog, Python blog, and his research. Quite an active people :)
