This is my own cheat sheet for svn propset, which I struggle with every few months. Hopefully, I can remember this next time..
Problem : I want to ignore certain files in my working copy, when I do an svn status, svn commit etc. I don’t want the cache, or my .pyc files to get committed.
Solution : svn pe svn:ignore .
this should open vim, and then on each line I enter the files I want to ignore..
Caveats: I need to do this for each directory, I can’t find a recursive option for this.. so when I’m doing python, and each application has it’s own dir, I need to do it for each sub dir.
PS: Yes, I’m using python these days.. have to do it for a client.
