Yes, I understand that.

Sadly, that is often not the case... (otherwise the RTFM acronym would
not exist!)

And even if they do, it's not made particularly obvious that the URL
is not suitable for SVN client access.

The section says:

"The following is a link to the online source repository." - that
could equally apply to SVN clients.

The section header says "Web access" but "Web" does not always mean
HTTP(S); it's often used loosely to mean Internet.

The fixed page text really ought to be clarified.
