Re: How to "un-checkout" from svn

I don't think you can clean up your working copy once it's all checked
out, but if you can check out a working copy anew, try using the -N
flag (no recursion). It will allow you to selectively check out the
contents of various folders while still keeping the folders themselves
versioned (so you can go to a higher-level directory and do a checkin
on the directories you *did* check out all at once).

As Steve pointed out, you can't only decide to check out certain files
in a directory, but you can tell it to only check out certain

Be warned though -- if you do an svn up in a directory where you've
previously checked specific things out using the -N flag, it will
update *everything* unless you also specify the -N flag with updates.
It becomes more maintainable to (easily) script this scenario than
doing the various updates with -N by hand.
