Install SVN Doc Needs NodeJS version update

Description

It appears that trunk now requires NodeJS V 20. Text currently suggests V 16 is sufficient.

https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/tutorials/installing-wordpress-locally/from-svn/

For those using Windows 11: If you have not previously installed npm and grunt you will get an error with suggested npm commands. Download and install Node.js from here: https://nodejs.org/download/release/latest-v16.x/. Before attempting to run the suggested npm commands, open a command window and navigate to your wordpress-svn directory. Issue the following command: npm install -g grunt-cli – This installs the grunt client. Then add grunt to your wordpress instance using:
npm install grunt --save-dev
npm run dev should now complete the process of unpacking the WordPress install.
