This is typically an advanced user's choice to commit binaries... you
might want to discuss the reasons behind that.

In between you also "svn add"ed some files, otherwise there wouldn't
have been anything to upload.

SVN 1.7 only create a single .svn dir in the root of a working copy
(older SVNs did so in every versioned subdir!). If you now check out the
parent folder instead of the one where your working copy currently
begins, there won't be a .svn dir in the place where it currently causes

You might want to take a look at svn_load_dirs. This tool syncs a folder
inside a repository with the state of a folder on disk. This would also
take care of adding and deleting files automatically, which is
reasonable when the files were already generated automatically.

Good luck!
