I can affirm that a Check-Out using the https works whether or not one is a committer.  On

(Note that this is not true for private/restricted SVNs where one must offer credentials to
access them whether via check-out or web access to the repos foler.)

My pure speculation is that the https is specified in this way because of performance concerns
around all check-outs and updates being done via https.  I don't notice that, but the server

Very nice.

But a question: I know that committers must checkout code via the
https URL in order to be able to later commit.  But is there any
reason why a contributor could not download via that same URL?  I
thought the authentication was only required at commit time.  If this
is true, that would simplify your instructions.
