svn checkout svn+ssh://
When prompted for the password, enter "anonymous". You currently have to enter this twice, once for ssh and once for subversion.
The module you wish to check out must be specified as modulename (either 'powersave', 'kpowersave' or 'wmpowersave'). When prompted for the password, simply enter "anonymous".
