I have an SVN repository that is accessible via http, but it requires a
username and password. Any idea how to install this plugin using a
username and password?

Thanks for your help.

You just add the username and password in the standard URL format.

script/plugin install http://username@hostname/path/to/svn/trunk/project
piston import http://username@hostname/path/to/svn/trunk/project

and it will ask you for the password on the checkout....
