Well, I would suggest those list-people to doubt themselves a little less
and answer anyway:

- They probably know that part of Subversion better than the poster

- Posters often get some things wrong (example: "I want to use
  global-ignores to avoid merge conflicts", "Why doesn't 'svn ps -F
  .gitignore svn:ignore' work (slashes in the pattern))

- Worst case, someone else will come along and corrects their answer
