You can do:
 svn up -r{20081128}
to update your working copy to the revision at the start of 28 November 2008.

If you want to know the exact revisions for november try:
svn log -r{20081101}:{20081201}

These logs can also be found at:
But they are complete so for Lazarus
(http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/logs/lazarus-all.log) I usually cancel
the load after a couple of seconds, because then I have to for me
relevant revisions.
