I think its one of those, if you are going to venture into the deep end 
of the waters, you should know how to swim things....If your going to go 
and use SVN, then you should at least know how to use it, ie know how to 
read up on the changelog/commit lists/dev lists.  I was never TOLD that 
myself, if just makes a hell of alot of sense to me that way.  If I want 
to use something, esp code thats actively being developed, then Id want 
to know whats going on with that code...the only way to know that is to 
either talk to the dev themselves (dev list is for that) or read their 
thoughts (commit list and trac for that).
