Script to remove .svn directories from a project

When you want to distribute your own sources without any .svn directories is sufficient to create an export of the project with this command:

svn export svn://path_to_repository projectname

But often I have not access to the repository, so I remove any .svn directory by hand.

For a couple of directories is not a problem but today I have a big project with hundreds of directories, so I created a little script to help me:

find . -type d -name .svn -exec rm -r '{}' \;

Replace “.” with your root folder.
