Hi Kyle,

Your best resource for SVN is


As to "staying current automatically," I don't think you can do that 
short of via a script. But I don't think you need to, really. After 
doing the checkout (HOWTO on the PLT SVN page), you just need to

 > cd [plt directory]
 > svn up

before building the most recent release. Updating a Subversion 
repository isn't that hard, so automating that process might be overkill.

Beyond that, Robby pointed you to their SVN repository page, which is 
about all a developer should be expected to provide. The PLT repository 
doesn't really behave any differently than any other SVN repository I've 
encountered. All the rest of the documentation you might need is in the 
on-line SVN book.

Hope that helps,
