Help with ignore patterns

Message Hi,

For some time I have been interested in setting up version control for
all of the configuration files on my computer. fsvs appears to be very
close to what I've been looking for, so I am trying to get started
with it. I'm using fsvs 1.0.11.

The one thing I am having trouble with is the ignore patterns. In many
cases, a directory has some large number of files, and I want to
version exactly one of them, no matter what files exist in that
directory in the future. Like for example, I want to version
/data/pgsql/postgresql.conf but I don't want to version anything else
under /data/pgsql.

What I have tried doing is defining ignores like this:

t./data/pgsql/postgresql.conf
./data/pgsql

However, the result is that all of /data/pgsql is ignored, including
the postgresql.conf file. If I then try "fsvs add
./data/pgsql/postgresql.conf" I get a segementation fault.

I've tried putting the "take" pattern in front of and behind the
"ignore" pattern. It doesn't seem to matter.

Is there any way for me to do what I want?

Thanks!

bn
