I found this useful recently when receiving a batch of code from a client who still uses Subversion…
To delete all .svn folder in Linux just follow the steps below:
- Start Terminal
- Change your current directory to your project folder (ex: /Users/me/Sites/project_a)
- Enter the following into Terminal: find ./ -name “.svn” | xargs rm -Rf
That should take care of it. In my tests I found one or two that still remained but this took most of the pain out of it.
