Best Practice for Ignoring Files

From: Kevin Cannon <kevin_at_multiblah.com>

I'm a just getting into using subversion thanks to our developers bringing it
in. For the most part I'm finding it useful, but I've had one problem with
ignoring files, and I hope you could help me out with it.

I have a site with a directory structure something like this:


I want to ignore the _notes/ directories and files in that directories. I've
tried using TortoiseSVN's global ignore, and also the svn:ignore setting with
mixed results. I still often see the _notes/ directory when I do a commit, and
with the svn:ignore thing it doesn't seem to get all the subdirectories.

If anyone tell me what the best practice way to do this consistently and
efficiently that would be great.
