RE: Default value for global-ignores - Import excluded .so files

Bear something in mind - because it is impossible to remove files from a
SVN repository once checked in, having some simple defaults in the
ignore list is a very good thing. Once you realise your .so has not been
added (it's usually very obvious) then you can figure out the ignores
and alter it to allow you to add.


The other way round, finding you've added a gig of binary build objects
and have to remove them from the repo is not nearly as easy.


(BTW: I know you can use svndumpfilter to remove files, but not if you
dump the repo with the -deltas option. If you do not use the deltas
option, your dump can be very very very large. My repo is 8Gb with
deltas, I don't think I have space to dump and filter without them L)

More info. Between 1.4.6 and 1.5.0 .so files were added to the default
values in


Again my point is that I think these default values are dangerous and
that nothing should be ignored by default.
