No, the documentation is correct: global-ignores also apply to add
and import. That is to say, if you globally ignore, say, files with
names ending in "~", and a directory foo contains files with names
ending with "~", and you "svn add foo", then you won't also add the
files with names ending in "~". If, however, these files are in a
directory already added to your repository, say, and you go into the
directory and say something like "svn add *" then your shell (not
Subversion) expands the * to include all files, even those with "~"
at the end of the name, and Subversion will add them. This is intended.
