Re: Telling SVN to ignore Changes to a file

Why is it checked into SVN if you don't want to version it?

I would think this sort of thing is better handled by taking the
original file, copying it to a unversioned location, and then making
your local mods. You could make that process a simple script that is
also kept and versioned in SVN.
