I've recently started using SVN as version control for our new Silverstripe. Unfortunately I'm a bit of a n00b when it comes to SVN and want to make sure I'm doing things properly so I don't cause myself more problems further down the line.
For a kick off I'm trying to work out how to add a new module via SVN install of just downloading the tar.gz file and extracting directly into the file system.
For example I'd like to install the User Forms module: http://svn.silverstripe.com/open/modules/userforms/trunk/
What commands (or Tortoise options) should I use to install this to a /userforms/ directory in my working copy?
Thanks in advance

I'm not sure about Tortoise, but what I do is keep only my "mysite" directory in my local copy, so it can have its own repository. Modules I check out right on the server. That way I can update them all asynchronously from the rest of my code.
svn co http://svnurl.com/trunk the_module_directory_you_want
