I'd like to install a mercurial plugin for Trac. The manual provides an svn path with the source code. I need to create an "egg" from that source code. Do I need to have SVN installed in order to do this, or can this be done in a different way?

(I'm very new to Linux, I've been using it only for the past two weeks.)

If you scroll down on the page you linked to, you'll see that they have it so you can download a zip file snapshot of each version.

The rest of the instructions are on that page as well, for how to build the egg.
