In the current SVN repository are 76 .cvsignore files. In SVN they aren't used
any more. SVN uses the property 'svn:ignore' on a directory instead.
During the cvs => svn transition the svn:ignore properties were set but in
the recent weeks they started to diverge. Currently (r8078) 22 .cvsignore
differ from svn:ignore (see attached cvsignore.diff)
I think we should remove .cvsignore files entirly.
As fas as I see, the only place where .cvsignore files are still used, is
If we require 'svn', than we can replace the reading on .cvsignore with
svn propget svn:ignore
Is that the right was to go?
I think it's correct. It also need to check for existence of a ".svn"
directory in path before running that; if it's not there, then try
svk propget svn:ignore
More files using .cvsignore:
This test checks the integrity of CVS. This the CVS=>SVN transition this is
I have a nearly working replacement, but the hard-coded .cvsignores get in
skips explicitly .cvsignore; can go
explicit skip of .cvsignore; already scheduled for removal
.cvsignore is not worth description
