As JF mentioned, lack of resources is one reason.  Another is disk space
and bandwidth.  (Well, ok, disk space isn't so much of a reason
anymore.)  At any rate, if you want tarballs of specific parts of the
SVN tree, you can... oh, no, you can't.  Hey Auke, any reason you
disabled the "create tarball" button on WebSVN?  (Yeah, I know,
potential for abuse, but it's really useful since we don't do snapshots.)

At any rate, Subversion is even easier to use than CVS, and there are
instructions on our website you can use to fetch the tree.  Since
Subversion uses HTTP on port 80, there shouldn't be any issues with
corporate firewalls and whatnot like was the case with CVS.

If you don't have Subversion installed on your system, it's pretty easy
to install it in your homedir if you don't have root/sudo access.
