global-ignores how to set it correctly?

First off I am using Mac OS X 10.3, the current stable version of
subversion and I have setup a subversion repository on a server. I will
be using tunneling over ssh to allow in house clients to access the
repository (svn+ssh://).

This so far all works but... I would like to set up a repository wide
setting for what files, by name, will be ignored by when clients
attempt to import source, etc. into the repository (like cvsignore in
the CVS's CVSROOT directory). In reading the documentation I believe
one uses the global-ignores setting to achieve this.

What is not clear to me is how to set this value.. what file to drop it
into so that it is global to repository or the server. Depending on
what I read... things seem to imply that I have to set this on each
client but I believe their must be a way to set this on the server side
once and have it apply to all clients.

At first I though I could modify the svnserve.conf file (found under
the repositories conf directory) to achieve this. I did the

  UW PICO(tm) 2.5 File:
global-ignores = build *~.* .* *.pbxuser *.mode1 *.app *.kext

...but when I do an import files I want ignored are not ignored...

[G5:projects/ftsw/ThreadTools] shawnce% svn import -m "Import" .
Adding version.plist
Adding FTSWThreadPool.m
Adding FTSWThreadPoolWorkerPrivate.h
Adding FTSWThreadPoolWorkItem.m
Adding FTSWThreadPoolWorker.h
Adding Info.plist
Adding FTSWThreadPoolPrivate.h
Adding ThreadTools.xcode
Adding ThreadTools.xcode/shawnce.pbxuser
Adding ThreadTools.xcode/project.pbxproj
Adding ThreadTools.xcode/shawnce.mode1
Adding FTSWThreadPoolWorker.m
Adding FTSWThreadPool.h
Adding FTSWThreadPool_Prefix.pch
Adding FTSWThreadPoolWorkItem.h
Adding English.lproj
Adding (bin) English.lproj/InfoPlist.strings
Adding ThreadTools_Prefix.pch

The shawnce.pbxuser and shawnce.mode1 should be ignored in the above.

What I am doing wrong... sorry rather new to subversion but I like what
I see so far.
