What's with the .svn Directory?
Every directory in a working copy contains an administrative area—a subdirectory
.svn. Usually, directory listing commands won't show this subdirectory,
but it is nevertheless an important directory. Whatever you do, don't delete or
change anything in the administrative area! Subversion depends on it to manage your
If you accidentally remove the
the easiest way to fix the problem is to remove the entire containing directory
(a normal system deletion, not svn delete),
svn update from a parent
directory. The Subversion client will download the directory you've deleted, with
.svn area as well.
ViewVC 1.1.5 ViewVC (formerly known as ViewCVS) is a Python/CGI-based system for viewing and interacting with Subversion and CVS repositories through your Web browser. It can browse directories, view changelogs, generate... diffs, view arbitrary revisions, and display annotated ("blame") listings. It has full support for tags and branches, and contains a database-backed query system like Bonsai. It was initially based on the cvsweb work by Henner Zeller, but has been ported to Python and dramatically enhanced(more)
svn2cvsgraph is a utility that allows CvsGraph to be used to generate revision graphs for Subversion repositories.

There are several ways to ignore files or directories in Subversion so that Subversion will not include them in the output of svn status and will not keep them under version control. However, the exact syntax can be a little tricky.
The single-command version is:svn propset svn:ignore test .
Note the . at the end to specify the current working directory.
The problem with this approach is it will deal only with a single file. If you run the same command again with a second file:svn propset svn:ignore test2 .
then test will no longer be ignored (only test2).
There are two solutions to this. The first one is to use svn propset with a text file containing a list of files to be ignored:
svn propset svn:ignore -F ignore.txt .
You'll need to re-read the file whenever it's updated or changed (and the value will be overwritten each time).
The alternative solution is to edit the list of ignores, using this command:svn propedit svn:ignore .
This will pull up a list of currently-ignored files in your default text editor. Add as many as you like, save the file, and exit. (Note that if you use propset again after this, it will overwrite the values.)
The second point to bear in mind is that when specifying directories, you should not use a trailing slash. This line will work:svn propset svn:ignore testdir .
But this one will not:svn propset svn:ignore testdir/ .
Again, of course, you're better off using svn propedit, but the same holds true there. Directory name only, no trailing slash!
All of these solutions are per-directory only; there are other options for global ignores.

If you want a pretty Win32 GUI, TortoiseSVN integrates nicely with the Windows Explorer. Note: TortoiseSVN is a separate project. Please post questions and problems to the TortoiseSVN project's own mailing lists., not Subversion's mailing lists.
