From the announcement, about the ignore patterns:

What that means is that if you're using a different FSVS_CONF,
you should just run
  $FSVS_SRC/pre-1.2-m​igration/convert-ign​ores.pl $FSVS_CONF/*/Ign

In which ways do they look incomplete?
Maybe the other files in that directory, that I've used for testing,
serve only to confuse people ... Sorry about that.

Would you mind elaborating a bit?

Of course.
Well, the repository can't be broken from the client side anyway,
and if you hose your local FSVS data the worst that can happen is
that you have to remove FSVS_CONF and FSVS_WAA, re-set the URLs,
and do a "fsvs sync-repos".


I sure hope that it "just works", but all-in-all is should be low-risk.


Regards,

Phil
