The path svn://anonsvn.mono-project.com/source/trunk/monodevelop
refers to the "monodevelop" folder in the Mono repository, which is
what you want. There's no easy way to download subversion folder
without all of their child folder; the MD makefiles expect pretty much
all of them to be there anyway.

The "trunk" is where all current development is taking place -- you
could set it to fetch "tagged" versions such as 13.1, but that's
effectively no different to getting the release tarball.

If you want more information about subversion, the book at
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/index.html is very useful.
