For 1-2-3-4, the next step is building: just read
(it's very likely that your next problem will be to get all the 
dependencies or "Build requirements"; you can find them listed on that 
page, but please ask here in case).

For 5-6-7-8-9-10-11, Subversion is a revision control tool, like CVS or 
Git. You don't need anything special other than the "subversion" package 
(the "svn" executable) you already installed. During the workflow you 
will need two commands only (to be excuted in "aoo", if your checkout 
was done in a directory named "aoo", like you state above):
$ svn up
will bring your working copy up-to-date, so that you can receive the 
work done by others in the meantime (this is why we use SVN).
$ svn diff
will show you what changed in your working copy. If you work on the 
code, "svn diff" is what you will use to propose changes.
