mentors: Dag-Erling Smørgrav, Eygene Ryabinkin

Description of task

The FreeBSD project is using the Subversion (SVN) source code management system to store and retrieve all sources for the system. To help developers work with SVN and the FreeBSD repository, a wiki page was created called the Subversion Primer:

This Primer needs to be moved into the developers handbook as a separate chapter (divided into subchapters as neccessary) so that all information for developers is available in one place. When adding these instructions and examples to the developers handbook, the source code needs to be correctly formatted and must conform to our documentation source code style guidelines.

Task requires:

A FreeBSD system (in a VirtualBox Virtual Machine) installed on your computer. 
Knowledge of the documentation guidelines for the FreeBSD project:
Check out a copy of the documentation tree from the documentation repository to get the source code for the chapter
Basic knowledge of source code management systems like SVN or any other
