Is there a way to add a directory structure to an SVN repository without adding the files contained in the folders?

If you want to do it recursively, maybe this will work for you?

find . -type d ! -name '.' ! -path "*.svn*" -print0 | xargs -0 svn add --depth=empty

The problem is that the "svn add" will automatically recurse and include the contents of the directories. You'll need to use 'svn add -N' instead I think to ensure that it only works on the directory and not any files inside. –  James F Jul 31 '09 at 12:27
    
Oh right, as he said, will edit post –  Kyle Brandt Jul 31 '09 at 12:40

So sorry, I should've RTFM ...

You can add a directory without adding its contents:

$ svn add --depth=empty otherdir
A         otherdir

Edit: This doesn't work recursively though, is there any way to do that too?
