I've seen this issue mentioned here before. From memory some use the
'svn export' command to get a really clean directory layout.

If you are using the Git mirror, you can simply do 'git clean' which
will really clean out anything that is not part of the repository. The
'git clean' command has various parameters to adjust exactly how fine
grained you want the clean process to be. You can also use 'git archive'
- very nice for creating release source code archives.
