Documentation of eggs not in the CHICKEN svn repository usually have a
link to to their repository.  Those that don't have a link to the source
repository are either in svn or the documentation is simply missing the
link.  In the latter case, feel free to fix the documentation in the
wiki by adding a section "Repository" with a link to the source

You can see the mapping between eggs and their repositories here: (the
links are actually to the .release-info file, but you can guess the
repository from there).

Instructions to fetch eggs from svn can be found here:

Now that the canonical option to host eggs is not the CHICKEN svn
anymore, I think eggs in svn should also contain a link to their source
repositories and, ideally, instructions on how to check them out (I have
a feeling that using svn is considered a lost art nowadays).

All the best.
