svn add ignores the ignore patterns

Hi all,

I just found out that the svn add command will ignore the ignore
patterns (both global-ignores config and the svn:ignore property) for
paths explicitly passed as parameters to it. E.g.

$ mkdir mydir

$ svn add mydir
A mydir

$ cd mydir/

$ touch myfile

$ svn ps svn:ignore myfile .
property 'svn:ignore' set on '.'

$ svn st
A .

$ svn add myfile
A myfile

$ svn st
A .
A myfile

I assume this is the intended behaviour. But the reason I'm bringing
this up is that this is not mentioned anywhere in the SVN book. Should
I report this as a documentation enhancement request to the issue
tracker?

Regards,

Knut Wannheden
