Re: Exclude/Ignore pattern

>Is there a particular file or group of files you're trying to ignore
unsuccessfully, or is this more of an acedemic exercise?

[Stuart] No, this is not an academic (note spelling) exercise, and I
don't see why we should seek to marginalize the question as such.

I appreciate your offer to help with a particular problem, but that
really doesn't solve my problem. I am involved in seeing if Subversion
and TortoiseSVN are right for us. I need to formulate best practices for
these tools and promulgate them across teams. I need to support others
in our organization with these tools as they try them on their projects.
I can't document use of this value or teach it to others if I don't know
what it is.

I didn't realize it would be this hard to find out the legal values of
this pattern and what they meant. And I wasn't expecting to be
challenged on wanting to know the answer.

If you'd like to help, please tell me how to interpret ".*~" and ".#*"
from the sample in Subversion's config file. Thanks!
