I don't want subversion to mess with some files, or to tell me about them when doing an
svn status. Add this to your
~/.subversion/configfile.[miscellany] global-ignores = build *.mode* *.pbxuser *~.nib .DS_Store *~Now it won't bug me about the build directory the -per-user Xcode files, nib backup files, the #$&!! .DS_Store file that the Finder litters everywhere, and also don't bug me about emacs backup files.
You can search for
global-ignoresin that file to see some info about the setting. You might want to check out Spring Cleaning with Subversion too.
