Working with perforce for years gave us quite a big and precise ignore rules list. The problem is that SVN&#39;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&#39;t have implemented something simillar to GIT&#39;s or Perforce&#39;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&#39;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

You provide no information about which version of SVN you are using,
and how you are currently using SVN ignores. Since it is unclear why
you are having problems it is impossible to provide advice.
If you provided some concrete examples of issues you are running into
perhaps we could suggest some ideas.

Are you already taking advantage of features which were added relatively
recently, such as the svn:global-ignores property, which is inheritable?
