Listing .svn files


I am trying to list .svn files and deleting from the server. Already done find and deletion but now,

the following commands,

find / -name .svn --- not listing any files

locate .svn --- Listing few files and if we list using ,ls -ail, it won't list.

locate .svn

o/p

pos3_2/.svn
pos3_3/.svn
pos3_4/.svn
pos3_5/.svn
prin_s_001_01/.svn
prin_s_002_01/.svn
xml/.svn
xml/lang/.svn
............

I want to know that whether it is listing fake or why it is happening if the file is not present.

Locate uses a cached database for queries. Once the database gets updated, it won't show them either.
