You mention that global-ignores is only for svn-status. That does appear to
be the case, so it appears that the document is incorrect. I'll file a bug
The document (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html), chapter
7, Configuration Options, Config, global-ignores, says that svn add and svn
import also look at global-ignores. The book is for 1.2, and I have 1.2.3,
so they should match.
