Re: Newbie question: svn:ignore ignored?

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for your help. I have checked and the build directory is not
under svn control and has not been in any previous revisions either.
It is completely un-versioned...!?

Nonetheless I always get these two lines in the svn status:

? trunk/ABFR7x/build/Deployment
? trunk/ABFR7x/build/A Better Finder Rename.build

The svn:ignore is set on trunk/ABFR7x and according to my logic this
should mean that anything from trunk/ABFR7X/build should be ignored.
Or is my regular expression false?

Notice that trunk/ABFR7x/build is not in the list..

Thanks again for your help.
