fsvs ignore ignores me. :)

Message Hi,

I've picked up fsvs recently to see if it could well be my ideal backup
tool. I really like the idea of a tool which backs up incrementally and
lets me see any point in the past, and also doesn't take up too much
space for each backup.

I've been initially experimenting with backing up my /etc and /root
directories to see how it goes.

So far so good, and I plan to put a daily entry in cron to commit each
of these at some point in the future.

First though, I want to make sure I'm not backing up guff that isn't
important, so I run fsvs status first.

When running status in /root, I see the following files that I really
don't want to back up:

./.viminfo
./.lesshst
./.fetchids

So, I tell fsvs to ignore them:

fsvs ignore ./.viminfo ./.lesshst ./.fetchids

No errors. But when I do fsvs stat again, the files are still showing.

So I think, maybe I need to commit for the ignore to take effect. So I
commit, and then do something that will cause one of those files to
change. Then I run fsvs stat again, and lo and behold, the file is
marked as modified again.

Any ideas? I'd rather get these files ignored so that on days that I
don't change anything important in the etc or root directories my
nightly commit call won't produce new changesets.

I also want to be fully happy with ignores before I start backing up
larger targets like /home with fsvs. :)

Thanks for listening.
