RE: Remove without delete

I would use the export command to generate a clean (meaning no .svn
subdirectories) tree of that part of the working copy that you want to
remove from version control, but not delete. Put it in a temporary location.
Then remove the directories from your working copy using the normal
subversion commands. This will remove them from version control. Lastly, put
back those trees you exported into their original position, under the
working copies. Any more updates and commits will ignore these directories
now, as they are no longer under version control.
