How do remove unwanted folder/file sets from SVN (subversion 4.0.9)?

Background:
I have used VSS (visual source safe) from within VS (visual studio) going back to my VB6 days.

Our solutions have been moved from VSS to SVN. VSS had the advantage of which folder sets were NOT needed for VS to build a solution. When the conversion team put them into SVN, they just right-clicked the top of the solution folder tree and put them into SVN.

I now use VisualSVN and every time run my apps in Debug mode, SVN marks the bin\Debug folders as dirty.

You can use the ignore property in Svn to ignore particular files or directories so they never get added to you repository.

If they are already in your repository you can do an svn delete to remove it in the first place
