No, I've read the manual already. Stop telling people to read the manual, as you and Felix Saphir obviously don't understand the context of the question. In context, my statements are 100% correct. We're talking about how to check out a file, but not have svn want to check it in, even though it's been modified. svn:ignore does not work for that.
