SVN on Linux
Tortoise on PC's installed

First let me say, I'm the sysadmin, not a developer so they tasked me to get
this done.  I take care of the SVN linux box and making sure it's up and
running. I can do basic stuff on SVN such as commit and checking out.

But here's something they asked me to do.  Mind you, this is all management
request, not developers.

They (managers) want a dump of code they can look at from say 1 and a half
years ago.  I can do that with Tortoise easy enough.  But these managers won't
have tortoise installed and I'm not going to train them on how to
"revert/merge/update" tortoise.

I *think* what they want is to be able to dump the repo, from 1.5 years ago, to
something readable they can look at.  They don't want to change anything, they
just want to be able to see it.

What I typically do for them is just do a check out to my local PC, and burn
the folder to a CD.  Yes, burn to a CD.  Old managers have old habits so I
don't question that.  

So what I (they) want is a CD with code that is 1.5 years old.
