RE: [Subclipse-users] "Add to svn:ignore" menu item is disabled for all files

Disabling automatic build was the key. After doing
that and a few iterations of the add to svn, delete
from svn, commit, restore, add to svn:ignore my
WEB-INF/ dir is all straightened out.

That's a nasty trap to fall into, however. Isn't
there any way to tell svn to ignore things on the
initial import? With CVS that's the only way you can
ignore anything because once something is in CVS you
can't ignore it.

This is a pretty dramatic difference when moving from
cvs to svn. Throw in automatic re-builds and you
really get locked up.
