Thanks David. For the past week and a half I've been wrestling with this thing. Searching, reading, trying, back to searching. Time to switch gears but I needed to get over this hurdle. I'm now on the second repository I have to dispose of (and all the history with it) so I hope the 3rd time's the charm.

Thanks again

Unless there is a command to edit it. I tried a search and someone says there is a site-wide config (what I need) and a user config but not where they are. I am using Windows XP and an having a difficult time finding this file.

First link from Google (search was "windows xp subversion configuration file location",

C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Subversion\config

I no longer run on Windows XP, so I don't remember if this is the proper place for the file, but I have no reason to doubt it.

For Windows 7 it's in:


Which I can confirm.

In the "config" file, I have my global-ignores for Windows set to:

global-ignores = *.obj *.lib *.map *.exe *.bak *.pdb *.ilk *.idb

There might need to be a few more; it's been several years since I have imported existing code into my Subversion repositories. But you get the idea.
