Comment (by johnbillion):

 I just went looking for the SVN URL for a plugin of mine which I want to
 update. Removing this sort of meta information from the plugin admin
 screen does not make sense.

 Replying to [comment:7 Otto42]:
 > Given that the plugin SVN url is always the same:
 plugins.svn.wordpress.org/$plugin-slug, then any developer should pretty
 much know it without having to have a link explicitly given to them.

 Who -- outside of the tiny circle of meta contributors and plugin team
 members -- would ''possibly'' be expected to know this?

 > Additionally, when a plugin is created, the SVN url is emailed to the
 author, along with all sorts of links and instructions.

 What about two years later, or when you've moved machines? Who would think
 to hunt for that email in their inbox?
