SVN Folder Cleanup With Automator

Once again today I downloaded a directory of classes, popped them into a project I had under SVN control and got loads of SVN related errors due to the supplier of the classes including all their .svn files with source.

I saw a cool Automator action (copied and thanks to team bkwld, I just just added Growl support instead of a text file dump) which will remove all the .svn files from a folder and its nested directories. It can be run by right clicking the folder you need to cleanup > More > Automator > ClearSVN.

Put the automator plugin into:

/Volumes/Users/{your home dir name}/Library/Workflows/Applications/Finder/

clearsvn workflow
