There are some customizations that I make that pertains to my development computer only and because I work in a team environment I cannot commit in things that are customized towards my development environment. In order to do this, I do a global ignore on the file. Here’s how to do a global ignore. The subversion config file for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS or 12.10 is here:
[code language=”bash”]sudo nano /etc/subversion/config[/code]
There is a section that looks like this
Set global-ignores to a set of whitespace-delimited globs
which Subversion will ignore in its ‘status’ output, and
while importing or adding files and directories.
‘‘ matches leading dots, e.g. ‘.rej’ matches ‘.foo.rej’.
global-ignores = .o *.lo *.la *.al .libs *.so *.so.[0-9] *.a *.pyc *.pyo
.rej *~ ## .#* .*.swp .DS_Store[/code]
You can uncomment that “global-ignores” part.
