You should already be fine here. A commit/checkin is not in my experience
strictly necessary. One stumbling block for me while learning to use
svn:ignore was the requirement of keeping one pattern per line. It took
several failed attempts before I read the appropriate passage in the book.
(I really must learn to read the manual first...)

You would actually be better served by never importing these into the
repository in the first place - which probably means not using svn import at
all. The method I use here is something like this: (repository already

1) locally, make a copy of the project I want to "import" and remove all
unwanted files
2) svn import URL/path/to/new/project /path/to/cleaned/copy
3) svn co URL/path/to/new/project
4) svn propset svn:ignore -F /path/to/ignore/file .
5) svn propset -R svn:keywords "Id" *
6) svn ci
