Ignore files in subversion

This is just a simple procedure how to tell subversion to ignore files or directories.

cd parent_directory

# Check the current setup
svn proplist -v .

# set the editor to edit the properties
export EDITOR=vi

# open up editor with the properties
svn propedit svn:ignore .

Text editor opens (vi in my case) Here you have to specify files and directories to be ignored. E.g.


and last, but not least, commit.

svn commit
