>Try '*.swp' instead? Maybe you've found a bug in APR's regex matcher...

It wouldn't surprise me if APR's regex matcher were buggy. This
discussion just reminded me of a problem I ran into a while back but
then found a work-around for.

I have my homedir under svn. Since I use exmh for my mail, I don't
want to version all the mail, just the config files maintained for
each folder (in mh, folder==directory, mail==file).

As a result, I *thought* I could get away with svn:ignore set to
something like:


No such luck. I had to resort to:


set recursively on my Mail dir.

Where can I find docs on APR's regex engine?
