Quoting http://subversion.tigris.org/project_faq.html#ignore-commit

I have a file in my project that every developer must change, but I
don't want those local mods to ever be committed. How can I make 'svn
commit' ignore the file?

The answer is: don't put that file under version control. Instead, put a
template of the file under version control, something like "file.tmpl".

Then, after the initial 'svn checkout', have your users (or your build
system) do a normal OS copy of the template to the proper filename, and
have users customize the copy. The file is unversioned, so it will never
be committed. And if you wish, you can add the file to its parent
directory's svn:ignore property, so it doesn't show up as '?' in the
'svn status' command.

Hope that helps,
