Hi! We've started to move from Perforce to SVN in my company for some reasons. We moved quite a few big projects that we have or we had been working in the past. Working with perforce for years gave us quite a big and precise ignore rules list. The problem is that SVN's approach to that does not quite scale up and also makes managing ignored files a pain - especially when working on many projects in same time. I was trying to dig for some piece of information, why actually SVN doesn't have implemented something simillar to GIT's or Perforce's ignore file that contains extended rules including full directories in the rules, !mark to not apply the rules for some files/dir, and so on. I would love to hear what's the official statement on that problem. I see that there is quite a few people out there struggling with the same issues. Usually everybody end up with something like own .svnignore file, small app and a bunch of hooks triggered all the time. Thanks in advance! Krzysztof Siewiorek-Pieniążek
