Re: How to Handle Versioning a Log File in an App's Source

Okay, well that does seem to be what I'm experiencing.

But if I SVN delete it, then if I check out that code to another
location, won't that svn-deleted file not come out, because SVN thinks
it shouldn't be there? That would not be what I want in this case.
