Blog: Remove and Ignore *.pyc files in SVN Repository

Please note, that this isn't by any means a solution I came up with myself. Credit is due to the following two blog articles: (1) (2)

Revert any SVN files that have been previously committed and might have updated since last commit:

find -name "*.pyc" -exec svn revert {} \;

Remove all SVN files from the repository:

find -name "*.pyc" -exec svn delete {} \;

Set your user so it never attempts to SVN pyc's again:

vi ~/.subversion/config

Search for and uncomment the global-ignore line, adding or modifying the ignore list as needed:

global-ignores = *.pyc
