Topic: rake doc:app corrupts subversion sandbox

The first command to be echoed by #rake doc:app is--

rm -r doc/app

which of course destroys not only the app folder but the very vital ".svn" hidden file as well.

Commits are not possible, cleanup fails with "app is not a working directory".

Since the ".svn" is not in the recycle bin, it cannot be recovered.

Anyone have any ideas (not messy ones, preferably<g>)?

Have you considered removing the doc folder from version control? Considering it can be generated I don't think version control is necessary for it.

Excellent point, ryanb --

Only (very mild) retort is that it is just one more thing for collaborators to do when participating in the project.

Thanks for the wake-up.
