.svn cruft finding its way into v. 2.1.rc3

    This took quite some figuring out. I have a local repository that I version to help keep track of everything (using svn in eclipse). But the latest release package/zip download (version 1.2 rc3) was throwing my repository into wonk. Specifically, the bbpress folder in bp-forums.

    It wasn’t allowing commits or updates from that particular folder.

    After downloading several times and trying to start from scratch several times, it finally occurred to me that there are several .svn folders IN THE ZIP FILE ITSELF that should not be there. I realize this is probably an oversite in the packaging industry over there at BuddyPress headquarters, but for anyone using a local svn repo to keep track of things, those .svn files are going to confuse your repo and need to be deleted.

    Andy, JJJ, DJPaul or anyone else listening, this will be especially important for the final release, as you’re going to get a bunch of people really confused about that.

    For anyone else struggling with this issue, here’s a quick help to delete those using terminal/unix command: http://subversion.apache.org/faq.html#already-under-version-control That’ll delete all those nasty cruft files.

    I’m going to throw this into trac as well, since it’ll need to be noticed.

    I have already seen this mentioned somewhere. This is only in the RC release and won’t be in the final download.

    Just out of curiosity, how’d it get in there in the first place? Just an oversight?

    No idea but I’m guessing apeatling just archived his BuddyPress folder and uploaded it ;)

    I’ve noticed that it updates from time to time if you try and run a build off of one of the tags. Is this because it’s pulled live via svn:externals?
