Svn:global-ignores is a property set on the repository. You don't need access to your host server to set that. Svn:global-ignores is combined with any "global ignores" set up in the config file. This is a "client" setting however on a shared host like Linux that file might be used by multiple users. Since we are talking about tortoise we are only dealing with windows here.

Svn:global-ignores is inherited... svn searchs UP the folder hierarchy until it finds it... once it finds it, then it stops lookings.



If you are adding to /This/Is/My/Path and you have svn:global-ignores set at both /This/Is/My and /This/Is ... only the setting on /this/is/my will be used.
