Well, it's the behaviour of subversion and git (and, IIRC, mercurial, etc. too), that an
ignore list is used for detecting *which files should be versioned*.

But it may not change the list of files that are already known, kept and stored.


The basic idea was that the patterns are used for removing noise from "status" display -
ie entries that are not versioned.
"fsvs add" should have priority, so that I can always define exceptions to the rules.

Well, I could certainly imagine a command that synchronizes the filelist against the
ignore patterns.

Or perhaps an option for commit; but I think the extra command would be better.
(If you make it an option, you could set it in your config - that would suit your kind
of work better.)


How about "filelist-sync"? No, too general.
Hmmm, "sync" and "ignore" as prefixes are already well-established ... so it should be
something different.

Phil
