Subject Are some global ignore patterns hard coded in svn?
Date Fri, 04 May 2012 14:04:17 GMT
Hi, all.
I presume following global ignore patterns are in some way hard coded in
svn (I checked in svn versions 1.6.16 and 1.7.2)

*.o *.lo *.la *.al .libs *.so *.so.[0-9]* *.a *.pyc *.pyo
*.rej *~ #*# .#* .*.swp .DS_Store

So, files matching these patterns are ignored when default configuration
files on client machine are used (I mean the system-generated files
/etc/subversion/config and ~/.subversion/config); in these default
files, global-ignores parameter exactly contains all the above patterns
but it is commented out, so I should expect no global ignore could be
applied: this is not true.

In order to avoid the ignore of files matching those patterns I have to
define the global-ignores parameter in config file and set it to empty.

Am I missing something?

Thanks for your attention.
