RE: svn add ignores svn:ignore

I looked through the release notes for svn 1.3-rc4, and they claimed to
have solved an issue regarding svn add and svn:ignore.
Have a look at http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2243
Maybe that's the solution to your problem. Haven't read it through
myself yet, so I wouldn't know.

        I tried this as a workaround
        svn add . --force
        but this exhibits the same behavior.
        I haven't got a clue how svn add is implemented, but if the
problem is with globbing, shouldn't this have avoided the problem?

                It's a Linux-ism, I think. Under Linux, the * on the
command line is
                expanded by the shell, not the application, so svn gets
the full list of
                filenames. And any filename explicitly mentioned on the
commandline is
                added, regardless of ignore status (otherwise, how would
you handle
                exception cases; eg. you want to keep a single .dll file
in Subversion,
                even though most of the time you want to ignore them).
                On Windows it's the application's responsibility to
expand wildcards on
                the command-line, but I imagine that all it's doing is
                everything blindly and then passing it to the same code
that runs on
