actually i did post the transcript in my original message to the list.

my original question was: "can i use the global ignore pattern in the
subversion config file to ignore a file when it is inside a specified

so i tried to use this in my config file

global-ignores = *~ *% mydir/myfile

and got this result with svn

>ls mydir

> svn status
? mydir/myfile

so including a fragment of the path with the file pattern string in
the global-ignores line doesn't seem to work, i was wondering if there
was some escape sequence i could use on the pattern eg: "mydir\/
myfile" etc but no dice..

the svn:ignore property works great but my users have to set it on
"mydir" in the above example after they've created "mydir", so its an
extra step they have to remember to do. it would be nicer if they
could specify something in the config file, but anyway..

thx again.
