Here it is:


SVN_DIRS=`find . -name working_copies -prune -o -name .svn -type d -print`
for dir in $SVN_DIRS; do
    TEXT_BASE_FILES=`find $dir/text-base -type f -print`
    TMP_TEXT_BASE_FILES=`find $dir/tmp/text-base -type f -print`
    PROP_BASE_FILES=`find $dir/prop-base -type f -print`
    TMP_PROP_BASE_FILES=`find $dir/tmp/prop-base -type f -print`
        mv $file $file.base-svn
        mv $file $file.base-svn
