Re: Avoiding certain files in some checkouts

You could create a branch just before publishing your sites, then run a
script that recursively finds your ".fla .psd" and other files and "svn
rm"'s them from your branch. Then export that branch to your production
sites.

That branch can then live forever as your "March2003SpiffySite" branch,
or you could move it to some other location in your repository to
indicate that it's a final release. Or you could delete it. Whatever.

By the by, the branch, while it looks like a huge waste of space, will
actually only take up a tiny slice of your repository.
