Find the package you're interested in from
http://www.archlinux.org/packages/ and click on it. At the right side
of the package page, you'll see a link named "SVN Entries (trunk)";
follow it. Now that you're at the websvn interface, click the link
that reads "View Log".

You are presented with a table that lists the revisions of a specific
package. On the "Log message" column you'll be able to locate the
package version you want, and you can then match that to the first
column ("Rev") which is the revision number you'll checkout.
