Good job taking care of that ignore-on-commit strawman, but yes, let's keep things factual: the fact is, you mentioned ignore-on-commit much later. The fact is that the original poster said, "I could just add it to the ignore list but that means it won't get checked-out when I do a clean checkout of the project." Your very first response to that was, "That's wrong."

However, it's not wrong. It's possible to add a file that's already in the repo to the svn:ignore property, but seeing that SVN won't ignore such files, it's stretching it to consider that "add[ing] it to the ignore list". To actually get SVN to ignore the file, you must first delete it from the repo.

If you still think the OP is wrong, maybe you can make yourself useful and explain to everyone how to use svn:ignore to do what the original poster asked. Responding to everything with "read the documentation" isn't useful at all.
