Re: svn status showing "phantom" files?

Ah, fun with Eclipse. :) I'm still an Eclipse newbie, obviously.

No, I have no desire at all to version control the "bin" directory.
What I was looking for was a way to store a version that could be
checked out by my team members that would work "as-is." Without the
bin directory, Eclipse complains and you have to create it yourself (or
my version does, anyway). I was trying to just version an "empty" bin
directory and then have Subversion just ignore the contents. Not a big
deal, so I'll just not put that under version control and deal with it.

Aside: I have been unsuccessful getting Subclipse to work on Mac OS X
(there are some fink based shared libraries that I still need to
install that the plug in is compiled against) but I haven't tried very
hard and I wanted to learn command-line svn first so I'd know what it
is fully capable of.

Ironically, it was Eclipse that led me to Subversion in the first
place. Since Eclipse makes it so darned easy to refactor Java code, I
was having a heck of a time with CVS and its inability to version
directories. I was having to manually fiddle with the CVS repository
to get the results I wanted and I was getting quite frustrated dealing
with it. Subversion is really helping in this regard so far!

Looks like I've got some more experimenting to do, though. Thanks for
the responses! I thought I was going a bit crazy there.
