Perhaps you shouldn't build releases from the dev's sandbox who forgets the checkins, but
from a separate sandbox. That way you notice immediately when something is missing/not committed.

When I say later I mean that day or the next, picked up by continuous integration. Its not
always obvious what has happened and can take some time to diagnose and get the missing files
added. Its an annoyance.

Just had a thought, perhaps the svn devs should be bold enough to not set up any ignores by
default - noy necessary now there are more powerful ways of doing it and it would solve this
