Are there any issues related to having the version control hidden files and
folders on a production site? Does the Subversion .svn folder need to be
protected on a production site? Is the best practice to do ongoing updates
on a production site using version control or to export  specific tagged
versions to a production site (which would remove al the version control
specific hidden files)?
