Subject: Is it possible to have an unversionned item in a svn repository that is still checked out the first time?
My problem is this one: I would like to have a configuration file in my subversion project, along with the code. Ideally, developpers checking out my project via SVN would get a copy of a (default) configuration file. Thus they would know that this file is there and needs to be modified accordingly.
However I of course don't need the changes they make to the file to be commited to the SVN repository... since these changes reflect their (local) configuration...
Is there a way to have such a file in an SVN repository? svn status would not show this file (as if it were ignored), but it would still be in the subversion repository.
It's not possible to do that with Subversion but...
Usually, projects contain a file called something like myproject-default.conf and users/developers just have to copy it as myproject.conf and modify it.
Your project can either verify if a myproject.conf file is present and either complain, either use the myproject-default.conf.
Think simple :)
