sbv import question / excluding directories

From: Frank Munch <sm_sbv_at_u5.com>

Hi,

I am new to Subversion but so far find it great. :-)

I have some projects (just a set of directories/files, not from CVS or
similar) I'd like to import and they contain directories that should be
excluded.

Now, I have seen that I in

~/.subversion/config

can set a list of "globbed" names, so if I should not want any directories
(or files) called "images" I can write

[miscellany]
global-ignores = images

which works. But what if I don't want

/images

but need

subdir1/images

in my import?

- - -

The manual writes about a more detailed
svn:ignore - property, but that goes on the working copy, which can only be
retrieved _after_ the import - right?

I have also tried to play with

svn propset --revprop -r 0 svn:ignore "/images"
file:///usr/home/fm/svn_test/repos2

but can't make it have any exclusive effect on any import.

- - -

So in short:

What would be the right general way to set up a detailed exclude-filtering,
before, as adminstrator, importing from a tree of source files?

Thanks in advance for any hint in the right direction.

/Frank
