Instead of excluding files, I need to submit only matching files

Dear mailing list members,

I'm using an IDE that creates hordes of temporary files in the project
directory, some of which tend be be quite large and ever changing ;-(

I already moved my sources into another directory structure, but the IDE
project file is always saved to the associated project directory.
My problem is that the IDE spews a large number of temporary files into
that project directory, too, and their naming conventions are so f***ed up
that I gave up trying to find exclusion patterns. I exclude one pattern,
and this software invents ten new ones that do not match any rule. Sadly,
the IDE cannot be taught to behave - they only have an option to "delete
temporary files", which still leaves a bunch of corpses lying around.

Is it possible to teach a Subversion/Tortoise that it should commit only
files matching a list of patterns (instead of excluding matching files)?

Yours, Christian Treczoks
