Oh yes. I've the same problem. You could also think on a template based approach. So that I can just select a "VS2005" template for a folder and it knows that it should not commit *.user files, BIN and OBJ Folders (for Visual Studio as example)

Betreff: Re: Ignore list issue


Abyss :

Consider the following solution/project structure:
- AProj
--- AProj.vcproj.COMP.XXX.user
- BProj
--- BProj.vcproj.COMP.XXX.user
Note that these *.user files are just temporary files created by Visual
Studio and should not be submitted to SVN. The files are not versioned. Also
the case of *.user extension is the same in all cases.
During the commit of Root both *.user files are displayed in the Commit
dialog. When I right click the first and from the Tortoise context menu I
choose ignore *.user it ignores only the AProj....user file. I have to right
click on the BProj...user file too. Maybe the *.user works only on given
folder - in this case on AProj folder. Adding a 3rd item to the Tortoise
context menu e.g. Ignore all *.user - which would ignore all *user files
from root folder recursively, would be helpful. Note that my solution
contains about 50 projects and ignoring all *.user files are painful...
Do we have any workaround for this?

        I have problem to add the
        Project.vcproj.WORKGROUP.Abyss.user files to the ignore
        list. The Visual Studio solution contains 20 projects and each of them
        contains such xxx.user file. I would like to add all such files to the
        ignore list. I tried to use "Add to ingore list" -> *.user command but it
        does not work. I had to add the user files for each project one by one.
        One idea how to do this in one step? Is it a bug?

This normally works. I frequently ignore *.o or *.obj
Are the files already versioned? You cannot ignore versioned files.
Check case sensitivity. *.user *.User *.USER are all different.

You may add *.user in global-ignores list in
C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Subversion\config
