Hi Troy,

I'm not sure that I completely understand your situation, so here is my
attempt at an answer.

If you are working from the command line, within a working copy, and you
start creating files within that directory, and then you type 'svn status'
you will see that all of the files have a '?' next to them. If you type
'svn commit' nothing will happen.

If you type 'svn add *' then they will be under version control and when
you type 'svn commit' they will get committed.

If you only want to commit a single type 'svn commit <filename>'.

If you want to ignore file so they don't show up in status you need to
edit the svn:ignore property on your directory.

Does sort of answer your question or am I too far off?
