Re: .so files are skipped

Thanks for the solution.

Sorry about duplicating threads, it's very hard to find anything useful with
".so" as one of the search terms.

Yes we definately want to keep binaries in one of our repositories. We are
using separate repos for managing different projects, but we have one which
actually keeps copies of the installed apps which trivialises the way we
upgrade our servers.

At the moment we are not in the position to be creating packages for our OS
so managing it in SVN or similar is the perfect solution given our
constraints.

- Dave.
