Our site is updated on a daily basis from a web-interface by our end
clients. Our developers work on the site locally on their macs, then
update the repos, which in turn updates the dev server automatically
via a post-commit, once every day or so. In order for the dev site
and the local sites to properly be tested we needed the images and
end client files to be present.

All that to say that we tried using svn:ignore on the end clients
files, but ran into problems properly testing our code before going
live. So no, we do not use svn:ignore on any files and everything is
in the repos, with the exception being our MySQL DB's.

We realize this is not the best setup, as having all those files and
images in the repo is a bit uncouth, but it does work well none the
less. We do not use BerkeleyDB and use mod_dav_svn instead of svn://.
We hope to try out our setup with the BerkeleyDB to get a speed
improvement on commits.
