subversion: how to discard a checked out working copy


Hi all,

Let's say I have a checked out a directory from the svn repo and later on I find that I have no need to make any changes. Of course I can just `rm -r` my working copy, but how do I tell the svn repo that I'm no longer using this working copy?

Thanks.

I've not used svn much but if it is anything like cvs, mercurial or git then it probably doesn't even keep track that you have checked out anything and therefore there is nothing to tell it.

Cheers,

Okay. That's probably why the subversion manual does not even mention such thing.
Thanks.
