Feature request: svn ignore

From: Martin Fuchs <fuchs.martin_at_gmail.com>

To configure the svn:ignore property on the command line one can use
the "svn propset" command. It is even possible to specify the "-F"
option and read a list of file patterns from a prepared file. But this
is a all-or-nothing way: One must always give the full list of file
patterns to "svn propset".

I would like to propose a new command "svn ignore" to extend the list
of ignored file patterns by one or more entries. This is the syntax of
the new command:

svn ignore <path> <file pattern list>

The following example commands give an application case for adding a
new directory to the repository:

svn ignore . Debug
svn ignore . Release
svn ignore . *.log
svn ignore . *.exe
svn ignore . *.pdb *.map
svn ignore . *.ncb *.opt

Each execution of the "svn ignore" command reads the current
svn:ignore property of the current directory "." and extends it by the
listed file patterns.
If the svn:ignore property for the current directory was empty or not
existing before the execution of the command list above, it would
result in the full list of file patterns to ignore:

Debug
Release
*.log
*.exe
*.pdb
*.map
*.ncb
*.opt

What do you think: Shall I create a new entry in the issue tracker for
this feature request?

Regards,

    Martin
