RE: Svn:ignore only an extension?

Thanks Erik, but that's exactly what I had tried (and all other
documented methods directly related to "svn:ignore").

I'm asking the list because the "separated list of file patterns to
ignore" seems to not enforce the propset rule against non-versioned
files.

The last thing I would want to do is add+commit *.abc files just to
ignore them. That would unnecessarily increase the repository size.

From 'svn help propset':

    svn:ignore - A newline separated list of file patterns to
ignore.

So I guess you will need to specify a file pattern, not an extention.
Something like *.abc should do then...

svn help is your friend :-)
