Subversion Edge is a server. It can find the local repositories on that
you want it to expose. They have to be on local disk. It only looks in
the folder you tell it the repositories are in.

The IP address in SVN Edge is also from the local server. It is simply the
local IP address whose network stats it will track. That is it. You
configure the IP address of your server using the server OS.

Does it do what exactly?

svn:ignore is a property you set on paths within the repository. That is
something you do using a SVN client on a checked out working copy. You
then commit the property change to the repository after you set it.

I cannot tell from the thread what you are trying to do. If these are new
repositories, then SVN Edge allows you to create repository templates that
have content in them. So you can setup a specific structure including
things like svn:ignore settings within the repository structure and then
create a template so that as you create new repositories in the future they
are already setup. The template can also include default set of hook
