My original question was:
Another property that I would like to edit is the server-side "svn:ignore" property. I can edit the client side but not the server side. I currently have svn:ignore set on my 'trunk' folder and I cannot get rid of it.
and the reply from ivinnykov was:
Regarding server-side "svn:ignore" what do you mean? "svn:ignore" property is applied to folder and is shared. In order to edit these properties you need to select folder, select Team>Edit Properties in context menu and SVN Properties view will open. You will be able to select any property and in context menu select required action: Edit, Remove, etc.
In your case you just need to remove svn:ignore if there is only one value, or edit svn:ignore value and manually delete "trunk" occurance if there many ignored resources.
I would like to explain the exact symptoms I am experiencing.
If I look in the "Java" perspective at [Project Properties / Subversive SVN Info / svn:ignore], I see:
Other ways to get this exact same list:
- * Igor's suggestion of using Team>Edit Properties in context menu of the project (that is, I right-click on the name of the project in the "Package Explorer").
* 'svn proplist svn:ignore' from the command prompt, when I'm in the project folder.
But when I go to the "Subversive SVN Repository Exploring" perspective, right click on TRUNK and choose "Show Properties", then "svn:ignore", I see:
I cannot edit this list, only "Save Value to File" is available.
I think this list of resources may have been part of the ignore list when the project was originally "Shared" (this was done by someone other than me) and I cannot change it from the "Repository Exploring" perspective. It also does not change if I change the svn:ignore list of the project.
Any ideas for where I should investigate would be most welcome!
