Re: Re: Global-ignore - web-host only

Hi Dan,

This has nothing to do with the repository at all. Ignore settings are
either in the local config file, or you set them on your working copy, or
you set them in the repository using repo browser. You do not need direct
access to the server. I use CloudForge myself so I know this works.

Last time you talked about this, BOb mentioned that svn:global-ignore in
1.8 works on import if it is already set in the parent folder in the
repository. You can set folder properties in the repository using the repo
browser, but it may also depend on the server version. I don't know if
CloudForge is using 1.8 yet.

Personally I never use import because it doesn't let you choose what you
are importing. Read this section in the manual:


Keep reading down to Import in Place, which is the method I use. Short form
is that you create a folder in the repository (use repo browser) and then
checkout that folder over the top of the folder you want to import. You end
up with a versioned top level folder and you can then use 'Add' to add the
files and folders you want, and you can set ignore properties.
