How can I check-out the latest Spark code?

its been moved to github

I thought SVN should be in a read-only form, but maybe it is not available anymore (though i can browse it via Fisheye) and nobody noticed this as we have moved to Git long ago. Specifically GitHub. You can checkout it from here

As SVN is read-only, it is almost a few years old. So the latest source is only available on GitHub.
