Global ignores would work, but it's a bit of a pain to add and remove
then. I'd like to do the functional equivalent of quickly closing a
tree node to hide data that I don't need to see.

I suppose that having a right-click option on a folder to
collapse/expand the folder and its children might work - the files are
still in the list, just rolled up into a single node.

I think it must be a bug in subversion. I set the svn:ignore property
on a directory to "test", then tried setting it from a directory above
to "bar" and it blew away the contents of the svn:ignore property,
replacing it with "bar".

I'm using TortoiseSVN 1.2.0, Build 3602.

I just checked the subversion source and it's not doing a merge on the
svn:ignore property as far as I can tell:

http://www.endrun.org/xr/svn/source/subversion/libsvn_wc/props.c#1041

Quick question: if the property-recursive flag is set on the TortoiseSVN
property page, should the "set" button always be enabled? If not, I can
just force a fake change to the root svn:ignore pattern
(space/backspace) to enable the "set" button so that I can propagate the
changes down.

Thanks,
Matt.
