RE: excluding a file or directory from svn server

Hi Muthu,

I don't think it is possible to stop people from using "svn add". Svn
add runs on your local machine (clients) and the hooks are on your
server.

But having said that, why can't the users "svn revert" the excluded
directory before committing again ? If you svn revert the excluded
directory then it would not form part of the next commit.

Thanks
Lakshman
