Re: Ignoring files and directory

Thanks for your answer. My situation is very similar to what you described
except for a couple of minor things. The first is I deleted the bar
directory directly from the repository, so when I go to commit the project
(even after putting in the ignore properties as you described), I get the
following error:

Name does not refer to a filesystem directory
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Path 'bar' not present

So I went one level above the bar directory (call this directory barParent)
and tried adding the word bar to barParent's svn:ignore, but it doesn't seem
to work. Is there a special notation for blocking directories?

Or will I simply have to add the bar directory back to the repository (even
though I don't want it there)?
