Subversion Dev team:

Thanks for all your hard work. I just began using subversion and it is
great.

Among other things, it is fast.

One complaint.

As a new user it was my expectation that 'svn add *' called from within the
root
of my version-controlled root directory would result in *all* changes that
had been
made within the file system to be scheduled for inclusion on the next
commit.

Instead, it ignored a whole raft of new files that were buried in
subdirectories.

It took me a while of poking around to find this out.

The behavior I expected was that "svn add *" would schedule a snapshot of
the
entire directory tree. Of course, to actually make this happen, I had to use
the "svn add * --force"
option.

Why would you have subversion skip a bunch of files? That makes no sense.

It seems to me, the default behavior should be the obvious behavior. Or
maybe there
is more that I don't yet understand. If so, I would like to hear.

Thanks. It is great software.

David Heitzman
