 If you choose to use subversion, you must issue the following command on your
 command line, DOS box, or terminal::
-    svn co http://codespeak.net/svn/pypy/dist pypy-dist
+    svn co http://codespeak.net/svn/pypy/trunk pypy-trunk
+This will check out the subversion head and place it into a directory
+named ``pypy-trunk``, and will get you the PyPy source in
+``pypy-trunk/pypy`` and documentation files in ``pypy-trunk/pypy/doc``.
+We try to ensure that the head is always stable, but it might
+occasionally be broken.  You may want to check out `our nightly tests:`_
+find a revision (5-digit number) that passed at least the
+``{own}`` and ``{applevel}`` tests (corresponding to a ``+`` sign on the
+line ``success``) and then check out using::
+    svn co -rXXXXX http://codespeak.net/svn/pypy/trunk pypy-trunk
+where XXXXX is the revision number.
