Thanks Mark!!! That might be exactly what I was looking for. Now I have an unusual question I don't know if anyone knows the answer. I may just try it anyway. What happens if I have more ignores than I need. Will it hurt performance much? For example, my setup looks like this:





Reporitory/Project1/My Project






What if I set this property recursively "svn:ignore *.sou *proj.user bin obj"? I know it will get applied to many directories unnecessarily. For example, only the top level directory (Project1) will contain any *.sou files. The ignore will get applied everywhere, even where it is not needed. Can this cause any major issues? I like the idea of entering the property once. Although I can go down the line and paste the property where it is supposed to go. Is it worth the extra effort?


That is what I was looking for Mark, thanks.

        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.


You can set properties using TortoiseSVN:




You can also set properties on folders recursively. The problem with doing this for svn:ignore is that it is a multi-line property and it would be fairly uncommon to want an identical property value for every folder. If that is what you want, setting it would be very easy to do.
