with Subversion 1.3 you have not add each file explicit, you can use

svn add *

within your working copy directory to add all files. But: If you've
already added some directories to the working copy/repository svn add *
*will not* go into these directories and add the new files in there; you
can force this:

svn add --force *

This command will go through the current directory (if it is a working
copy) and add all new files to revision control. If there is a directory
thats already under version control, svn will check this directory
recursively - only new files/directories will be added.

BUT: svn add will NOT use svn:ignore-definitions, so if you have an
working copy with


and your svn:ignore will be ignodir/* svn add --force * will add this
directory and its files to version control.

[It's a good question, why svn add ignores svn:ignore. It may be
important to add ignored files - I think, Subversion should mention the
svn:ignore-settings. svn add could use the --no-ignore switch, couldn't it?]

Best Regards
