[TSVN] removing Subversion internal files?? or do 'clean' checkout?

Hello there,



I’m using Turtoise and Subversion for versioning my PHP Sources. Not for
long now, so maybe this is a newbie question, but I didn’t find an answer in
the FAQ or TFM…


My problem is, there is a huge amount of, let’s say ‘crap’ when checking out
sth… I know it’s not crap that’s in the .svn directories, it’s what it is
about, off course! =)


But when I want to update my files on the webserver, I need a ‘clean’
installation, only the source and data files. The .svn files at least double
the space and time needed for copy (plus, it’s quite needless to have
subversion stuff there). And sometimes I want to copy a versioned dir (a
theme e.g.) and modify it (building a derived theme WHILE keeping the other
e.g.), but it always copies the .svn directories along, causing Turtoise to
think the folder IS ALREADY versioned and keeping it from committing the


Is there a better way than browsing into every damn subdirectory and
removing the svn-related dirs??? You know, there are quite a lot of dirs in
my project…


Or is there a way to at least do a ‘clean’ checkout of ONLY the sources?




Thanks and regards, Oliver Müller
