If I want to run:

svn co osm2mp

on e.g. Leap or also TW, do I have to run the command as root (with sudo)
or do I run it as user?

As user.

I answered this on another post.

I'm not familiar with sm2mp, but I'm familiar enough with svn. As far as
you are concerned, it is just a plain download command.

The command is "svn checkout source_tree_link directory" and it just makes
a copy of the source tree directory (or text files or whatever) into

If it were the case of C source files you would _later_ make and install
them as root later. That is _later_. The svn command is run as user.

Note: my description of svn is (intentionally) not precise. For your use
case, it suffices, though.

If you want to be more precise, well, the svn server keeps a current copy
of "text files", but also of all the modifications that those text files
undergo, so that you can undo some modification or get a copy of the files
as they were on an exact date (and second) a year ago. Writers upload the
modifications, and people can "checkout" a copy.

You are only getting a copy of the files as they are this instant. A
checkout, or 'co' in short.

This is the least of your worries. Just run the command as user and move
on to your next step :-)

Thank you all, especially for the last explanation that was fantasticly "down
to earth".
