RE: Re: SVN ignoring the change in a file

It sounds like you want to store a configuration file in the repository
with defaults that get updated by the user whilst running the program???

If this is the case you have 2 options:

1) Have a default settings file that is constantly read only and store
the user changed settings in another file.
2) Store the file in another location under version control and copy it
to the 'correct' location during the build / setup phase of your
project.

HTH,

Graeme
