Message Hello Maurice,

please forgive the long delay - I've been on vacation.

Well, "svn:ignore" is defined to be per-directory - which is very impractical
if you're versioning several hundred thousand items spread over big
hierarchies, and you want to ignore "*.bak" everywhere.

That's why FSVS doesn't use this property.


And the ignore patterns are versioned - as soon as your $FSVS_CONF/$WC_DIR/Ign
file is versioned, too (for /etc as WC and default-config you'll get that
automatically - eg. "/etc/fsvs/182f153bd​94803955c2043e6f2581​d5d/Ign")

Yes, you're right.
Did you try this:
    fsvs ignore $PWD/somefile

I guess I'll have to document that - it's not mentioned anywhere yet.

Thank you, I'll take a look.
Is that for Gentoo? I'd thought that FSVS was already available as a package
there, isn't it?


Regards,

Phil

Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
             Try fsvs (fsvs.tigris.org)!
