# Re: Strange repository behaviour when installing python program

From: Roel Vanhout <roel_at_riks.nl>

The obvious thing here seems to be that the script does a recursive copy
and thus includes the .svn directories in that copy. So the solution is
to change the script to not copy .svn directories. Or do an 'export'
(svn help export) and copy from there. But I probably misunderstood
something because this answer seems too easy.

cheers,
