Add new files/directory to subversion repository

These part of the command:

svn status | grep '^\?' => find new file or directory on working copy

sed -e 's/^\?//g' => remove "^" character on the first character of file name

xargs svn add => add file to subversion repository

You can modify above command to other circumtances, like revert addition files or commit files that have been modified. ^_^

Alternatives

There are 2 alternatives - vote for the best!

Know a better way?

If you can do better, submit your command here.

What others think

It's useful sometimes, but it's also dangerous to do this automatically at most of the time, we always add new files/directories manually in our team.

Have you recently read a book from Neal Ford? :-)

I always run svn status as svn status -q to not display '?' for unknown files. Before I knew about the -q option I was doing:

svn status | grep '^[^\?]'

which searches for anything not beginning with '?'
