A subversion-newbie here. I recently set up my svn system, but can't
work out why some svn:ignore settings do not result in svn status
ignoring them. They keep showing in svn status as '?' (unversioned
What I am doing is the following (from the command line):
% cat ~/Projects/Labsite/ignore_list
% svn propset svn:ignore -F ~/Projects/Labsite/ignore_list .
property 'svn:ignore' set on '.'
% svn status
My problem is that I would like the result of 'svn status' to be empty.
The strange thing is only *some* of the files I want to ignore, keep
showing in 'svn status'. I.e the command 'svn status --no-ignore'
also shows a whole list of files with the proper 'I' status. However
I couldn't figure out what the difference was between those file and
the ones listed above under 'svn status'.
Also the more I seem to try set more svn:ignore statements, the more
files loose their ignore-status.
How does the svn:ignore system is suppose to work? What could I be
What should I be doing to make those files no show up with 'svn status'?
