Re: svn:ignore bug on Vista

Aha! These are bytes.. Well.. Vista is expanding a STAR so I cannot sneak it in without editing the file manually..

so issuing this:
svn ps svn:ignore "*" tmp/

sets svn:ignore on all the dirs because the star is replaced by dir names by vista!

hmm wait.. I forgot about propedit. OK then this is a solution for now.. any maybe forever, because Vista will continue expanding that star no matter what. It's interesting that XP also expands it when written like this:
svn ps svn:ignore * tmp/

but not when the star is enclosed by quotation marks.

Thank you all, I learned everything I wanted to know.. I appreciate your time and hopefully I can start being helpful around svn development as well.. I have a big interest in that and was already exploring the developers section.. It's a little bit hard to get orientated though. Maybe because I'm beginner in open-source development. We'll see..

Thank you again!

 David thank you,

 that makes a lot of sense.. I will investigate possible workarounds...
 If you (or anyone else) would be so kind, I have another related question..
 What do the numbers by K and V mean?

 because now I could issue a command with something else instead of a "*"
and then go edit dir-props manually.. the only problem is that the numbers
are changing and I'm not sure what they mean..

They are (K)ey (V)alue pairs.  The numbers indicate how many bytes
each key and value is.

That said, you should NEVER edit ANYTHING inside .svn/.  You will
corrupt your working copy, guaranteed.   Just use svn propset/propedit
to change property values.  What possible reason could you have for
going behind svn's back?
