I had the same (or a similar) problem. I use TortoiseSVN . I have
placed an empty "classes" folder in the repository. I then used
TortoiseSVN (after a full build) & added the (newly created &
unversioned) "com" & "merge" folders to the SVN "ignore list". I
haven't done so, but am sure that the svn ignore command-line would
accomplish the same thing.
