Hi folks,

I'm trying to set the svn:ignore properties for a working directory, in
particular I want to ignore robots.txt. I'm following along with the
example in the book, chapter 7, but I must be doing something wrong.
Please bear with me, I've been in love with svn since February but this
is my first time trying to set svn:ignore.

In the following dialogue, .svnignore is a brand new file (not under
version control), and robots.txt is under version control but has been
modified and I want to ignore it.

[user@host htdocs]$ svn propget svn:ignore
[user@host htdocs]$ cat .svnignore
[user@host htdocs]$ svn propset svn:ignore -F .svnignore .
property 'svn:ignore' set on '.'
[user@host htdocs]$ svn propget svn:ignore .
[user@host htdocs]$ svn status
 M .
M robots.txt
[user@host htdocs]$ svn revert robots.txt
Reverted 'robots.txt'
[user@host htdocs]$ svn status
 M .
[user@host htdocs]$ svn ci -m "Updating ignore props"
Sending .
Committed revision 303.
[user@host htdocs]$ echo "foo" >>robots.txt
[user@host htdocs]$ echo "arf" >>.svnignore
[user@host htdocs]$ svn status
M robots.txt
[user@host htdocs]$ svn diff
Index: robots.txt
--- robots.txt (revision 303)
+++ robots.txt (working copy)
@@ -1,2 +1,3 @@
 User-agent: *
 Disallow: /
[user@host htdocs]$

The changes to the .svnignore file are being ignored, as directed; but
if I change robots.txt, it flags as modified.

What am I missing? Is it not possible to ignore changes to files that
are already under version control?
