HOW TO BRING OUT CODE OUT OF SVN:
rsync -arC: I was able to work around it using rsync – there is an option, C, that will ignore CVS/SVN files and directories when making a backup. I made a backup using this option, checked out the project again, and then copied the backup back over the new working directory. SVN is happy again.
- rsync -arC working_directory working_directory_no_svn
- rm -rf working_directory
- svn co https://svn.example.com/project/trunk working_directory
- rsync -ar working_directory_no_svn working_directory
