Bah! lol, sorry. Next time I will check the archives *first*, lol
I am using SVN to allow a number of support/development people to coordinate their changes to a dynamic website. One of the files being tracked describes the location of certain files that is different on each person's machine. The checked-in version of this file is the version currently being used on the main webserver. The issue is that each person needs to tweak this file for his working environment, and yet cannot check in any changes he/she makes or else the main webserver will stop working on the next SVN update. This is okay for the moment until someone gets careless and does a recursive commit.
So, is there a tag that I can place on a file to have it not be included in standard commits unless it is explicitly specified in the file list? I think I remember something about this, but don't remember where I heard about this feature (maybe it's in CVS or CVSnt...)
