Re: Ignore scenario - guidance appreciated.

You're correct that there's not really a good way to automatically do
what you want.

One potential workaround is to check-in the AssemblyInfo.cs files to a
"template" directory, and then have each developer run a script that
would copy the files into the proper working directory, that way the
AssemblyInfo.cs file that was actually used would be unversioned (and
svn:ignore properties could be set up to ignore it), but the pristine
AssemblyInfo.cs file would be versioned in a place where changes
wouldn't accidentally be committed. Of course, if the AssemblyInfo.cs
file changes frequently, this might be an error-prone solution, but if
changes are infrequent it could be workable.
