Thank you Ryan. Appreciate it, this was helpful.

To summarize for all of us : Subversion will never remove unversioned

What is ./td1?

You don't want either of those...

Subversion will not remove unversioned files; that would be data loss,
which Subversion is specifically designed to prevent.

I think what you should do is run "svn status" to see which files are
unversioned, and if you do not want them anymore, then remove them.
