I can't repeat that enough times. Fitz and a few others are probably
wondering just -when- I'm going to read this email and refer you to:


Which would be the Right Way to handle this kind of situation, and get
everyone completely away from the wrapper idea. People who helped
implement the wrapper idea think it's a bad idea. The synchronization
issue alone of implementing the wrapper gives most CVS admins fits,
and for good reason.

Note that (unfortunately) IB in Panther has the ability to listen for
a default for this kind of thing:

  'defaults write com.apple.InterfaceBuilder VersionControlDirectory
"(CVS, .svn)"'

will allow you to preserve your version control admin directories of
choice. You'll still have to manually 'svn add' or 'svn remove' if you
put things -in- nibs but IB can at least preserve the directories,
limiting the requirement for wrappers use.
