So why is it called checkout? It's more of a copyout or retrieve coz it
doesn't actually checkout anything....

(it's a rhetorical question before people shout at me....)

Checkout is used to get the initial copy of a module from the
repository.  Once you have such a copy, you use update to update it with
other people's changes from the repository and you use commit to commit
changes you've made to your copy to the repository so that other people
can get them.
