Subject svn:ignore
Date Tue, 19 Dec 2017 12:17:32 GMT
Hello, all

I can't seem to understand the usage of the svn:ignore
property.  I have a directory DIR with a file file.txt in
it, which I want ignored.  I entered DIR, and typed:

  svn propset svn:ignore file.txt .
  svn ci .

Now, when I modify file.txt, svn still detects the
modification and has no problem commiting it.  What am I
doing wrong?

I expect that it will ignore changes to file.txt.  If not,
what is the purpose of svn:ignore?

Please, do not forward replies to the list to my e-mail.
