By putting the "-not \( -name .svn -prune \)" in the very front of the "find" command, you eliminate the .svn directories in your find command itself. No need to grep them out.
You can even create an alias for this command:
alias svn_find="find . -not \( -name .svn -prune \)"
Now you can do things like
svn_find -mtime -3
Unless you have files that include 'svn' in them, this should provide enough information to be useful. If you need to be certain, add the leading dot in the search pattern
Variant of find grep that ignores files with .svn in the name. Useful for searching through a local repository of source code.
