I see: you must use a svn client to extract the sources. 

What you are downloading is an image of the subversion repository, which is 
the way the subversion server internally stores the data. Useful if you want 
to duplicate the repository, not useful if you want to compile the sources.

You can do the checkout, and then compress it into a *.tag.gz before bringing 
it home.
