Remove SVN metadata from a working copy

SVN stores metadata in a .svn folder in every folder of the working copy. If you want to remove those metadatas, you can use following command :

$>rm -rf `find . -type d -name .svn`

Or using pipes :

$>find . -type d -name .svn | xargs rm -rf

This can be read as : ''find recursively any directory named .svn and remove them''.
