Hi subversion-using world. I always had the problem that setting svn:ignores is quite tedious, especially since svn refuses to read the list from standard input, and specifying multiple line values on the command line is not very convenient. So I wrote a little shell script, here is the usage:
Usage: Just run in your svn directory. It will fire up your favourite $EDITOR and lets you edit the list of files unknown to subversion. Erase those that you don't want to ignore, and add wildcard patterns at will. When you close the editor, the files left in the list will be added as svn:ignore properties to their directories, amending the present list of svn:ignores
If you think this of any use to you, grab it here. Comments welcome.
