Personally I like the .svn (and RCS, CVS, {arch}, .git) directories to
be in the working copy. This makes the working copy transportable. I
have worked with other systems that put those in the home directory
and personally have had problems with them. I really dislike a shared
config file or a shared repository in my home directory. I really
like the distributed .svn directories much better.

Thanks for sharing your perl script. Regardless of philosophical
differences I wanted to say thanks. But if GoLive is having this
problem I would have thought it would be better to svn export the
directory instead. Or I would use rsync to copy from a staging
location into the live location to create a mirror without the .svn

  rsync -n -a --delete --exclude .svn --delete-excluded /from/here /to/there
