[MonoDevelop] How to update Monodevelop from the SVN

You seem to be on Ubuntu or Debian.  Make sure you have automake1.9 installed.

Do this once:
sudo apt-get build-dep monodevelop (gets all the dependencies)
svn co [whatever the anonsvn url is] [wherever you want to check it out to]

When you want to update:
cd [wherever you checked it out to]
svn up (updates to latest code from SVN)
./autogen.sh (add " --prefix=/usr" to this line if you want to
overwrite the default MD install)
make (compiles everything)
sudo make install (installs everything)

I'm sure this is documented somewhere (also there's a page on the
Ubuntu wiki to help you with doing this for any app), but I'm lazy and
hopefully this will get you started.
