Uh, the default value for global-ignores *is* empty. See below...

These lines are commented out, and have no bearing on the default operation of
Subversion. Of course, if you choose to uncomment them, or an administrator
does, these patterns will be ignored, but it isn't the default setting.

I think the only file type the Subversion ignores out-of-the-box is .o files
(but certain other generated binary types may there also). To see what is being
ignored, run: 'svn st --no-ignore'. Also, just because a file is being ignored,
does *not* mean you can't manually add it. After adding it using 'svn add', it
will be treated like all other versioned files.
