Re: Stop versioning a file

You may start with upgrading the clients only. (If you are not among
those people that use file: protocol).

1.5 clients do work well with 1.4 servers, and new features that are
client-side ones will be working.

Also, besides removing / renaming the file and placing it into ignore
list (that is the recommended way to deal with your problem), there
is one new feature in 1.5 that might worth trying:
 changelists.

You may try it without upgrading your server.
(It will upgrade your working copy, though, see release notes).

I have not tries it yet, but from what I am reading here, placing a file
into a named changelist will separate it from the other files in the
commit dialog, so that it will be at least visually separated from
the other changed files.

But, of course, I suppose that your working copy will be shown
as having changes (with those red marks on your folders and so on).

From the help:
"TortoiseSVN reserves one changelist name for its own use,
namely ignore-on-commit. This is used to mark versioned files
which you almost never want to commit even though they have
local changes. This feature is described in Section 5.4.3,
"Excluding Items from the Commit List"."

A caveat:
citing from the help: "The changelist feature in TortoiseSVN is only
available in Windows XP and later, as it depends on a shell capability
which is not present in Windows 2000. "
