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