 It links to the SVN repo, not in a new tab. I included it because in the
 previous iteration the SVN URL was a link instead of copiable text. I

 In this case, I would probably prefer to leave them as just the URLs for
 simplicity. People who want to know what the repo URLs are need to have a
 basic level of understanding about SVN/Git in order to do anything with
 them anyway, so they should know which commands to use.

 For the same reason, my preference would be to leave off `/trunk`.
 Branches and tags are useful for some people, and checking out the whole
 repo doesn't take ''that'' long (unlike the Plugins repo).
