Yes, this is per design.

Not yet. And if you ignored the whole directory, you wouldn't have the ignore
patterns versioned anymore.

There are two ways for that problem:
- Just ignore the "Urls" files ("/etc/fsvs/*/Urls")
- Have some other idea :-)

I briefly thought whether it would be good to have an option to ignore
the "Urls" file (like the WAA is ignored automatically), perhaps on "status"
only ...

That would be another special case in the code ... but maybe the only way,
especially for the "stop_change" case ... maybe just implement that there?

Do you have any other ideas?

Do you know C, and would like to send a patch?


Regards,

Phil
