RE: general questions

On our server we have 21 repositories. One of those repositories contains 44 projects (dlls). Each project needs the svn:ignore property set.

You're right, it is not common. But several times I had to leave tortoise to go to the command line. It's just one more pain. I feel there is a better way, I am just not sure what that way is, yet.

Do you really have 44 repositories? Or 44 projects in a single repository?

Tortoise is the best GUI for Windows I think. There are others. But, what you are doing is not a COMMON use case. The common use case it to add your ignores when you set up a new project in your repository. Doing 44 after the fact is not a standard use case.

Here is a list to some of the others:
