I might be a bit mistaken but if the SVN repo resides on the box which
you are deploying to should you not be able to use file:/// for the
set :respository in your recipe?

Or am I misunderstanding how the checkout occurs on the deployment box?

I just remembered–a local svn invocation is used to determine what
the current revision is, so that a commit performed in the middle of
a deployment won’t get boxes out of sync. Thus, the repo needs to be
accessible both from the remote host, as well as the host that you
are deploying from.
