Just to be clear, I don't have apprehensions.  Not sure why
you are saying that.  I said I understand "your apprehensions".

I have explained this several times.  I do not believe that
the process is implied, but explicitly defined.  If there is
something you still don't understand, please articulate a
specific question.

Someone pointed out (perhaps Tridge) that the ~ftp/pub/unpacked
area is sufficient for this.  If someone really wants history,
then there is gitweb as well as simply cloning the repo.  So
I'm not generating an anonymous svn repo of any branches.
