Re: Deleted directory committed to repo translated to ignored directory locally

Felix, you win the prize. I was looking for something to specifically match
one of the deleted folder names. There is a svn:ignore value of "*" in the
parent folder. Why someone thought this was a good idea, I have no clue.

Thanks for the help!
