I personally find that TSVN's Global Ignore works excellently and is
well documented.

It's a real mess to deploy it to multiple installations, though. I
consider it a Hack which is needed until the Subversion devs implement
something smarter that can be stored in the repository.

Same thing goes for TSVN's "set recursive" functionality.

Subversion's svn:ignore just plain sucks, half the time I can't make that work.

My dream ignore feature would be:
a.) Set svn:ignore on the WC folder containing visual studio projects
to "bin obj .*\.suo"
b.) Make a tick in the "inherit to folders" check box
c.) Commit and be done with it forever.

The TSVN GUI could present a ignore dialog box with a simpler syntax
to the user, where wildcards gets converted to a proper regex
automatically: *.suo --> .*\.suo

Keep it real simple but allow the power user to do fancy stuff.

Well, enough dreaming :-).
