Unfortunately she's right.

The Advent says:
 $ svk mirror http://dev.catalyst.perl.org/repos/Catalyst //mirror/Catalyst
 $ svk sync -r HEAD //mirror/Catalyst
 $ svk co //mirror/Catalyst

Which is what she had, and svk sync -r won't work.

The wiki isn't much help, either -- it doesn't give any URL but the svnweb path.

And the wiki is not emailing me my damn password so I can fix it.
