Re: Telling SVN to ignore Changes to a file

Don't have those files stored in source control using those filenames.
Store a version of the file using a slightly different filename, such as
web.config.default. When you check out a working copy, copy
web.config.default to web.config. Now you can change web.config as much
as you like and it will never be flagged as modified for commit because
it is not under source control.
