The ignore features of Subversion and Eclipse are designed to allow
you to ignore files and folders that are not already versioned. To
essentially keep you from accidentally versioning those things. There
is no feature to allow you to ignore stuff that is version.

folder from the SVN Repositories view. Do an update so that it is
deleted locally, then add the build folder to svn:ignore so that it
does not happen again. There is an FAQ related to the problems this
