I did find installing subversion confusing.

   1. I first installed Apache because it appeared from the subversion
      documentation that was a pre-condition.  That installation was
   2. I next installed subversion (http://svn1clicksetup.tigris.org/)
      after mistakenly installing what subsequently appeared to be a
      python interface to subversion
   3. I next typed easy_install trellis from a console window and it
      worked without reporting any errors.
