I read those steps, but was still confused. To this reader, https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/incubator/foo
is a web URI, not a directory. I gather that via subversion it maps to a directory on a server
somewhere and that using some svn incantations I can make it map to a directory on my local
machine. But those incantations are not clear unless you are well versed in the subversion
and Apache’s implementation of it.

Whoever wrote that page committed the first sin of documentation: they wrote for themselves,
not for their audience.
