Thanks, I've already setup global ignores in TSVN and that helps a
lot, but I also need Project specific ignores.

The problem with svn:igore and TSVN 'Add to ignore list' is:
a) I have to have the base directory of my working copy tree in the
repository before I can do anything.
b) I also have to "Add" each parent folder in the 'working copy' to
TSVN before I can use 'Add to ignore list' on its sub-folders or

This just seems backwards. ie. I have to 'Add' things before I can
'Remove' sub-things.
