Thanks Bob, that may be exactly what I am looking for. Something that would
affect all the files without having to issue over 200 commands or build a
dummy directory just for importing. Although that second suggestion provided
by Andrew is definitely better than the first.

I couldn't find where it discusses the global config in the book, if it does at all.
And even if it does I doubt it would help because it won't tell me where to find
the file. Unless there is a command to edit it. I tried a search and someone
says there is a site-wide config (what I need) and a user config but not where
they are. I am using Windows XP and an having a difficult time finding this file.

I can't even find the name of it. If someone can provide that I could at least
search for it and hope it has some clue inside as how to alter it.
Search for "global-ignores" in the single page version of the redbook: http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn-book.html

Here's infor about runtime configuration: http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn-book.html#svn.advanced.confarea

Thanks Edwin,

That's exactly what I am trying to do. I was looking for a way for
the tool to accomplish this. I'd be just as glad if someone tells me
it is impossible, which I suspect it may be. Otherwise there are over
200 manual operations required just to create a repository. The way
some people praise subversion I would think this can be automated.
But then again perhaps those are the people who use subversion for the
simplest of builds.

I'm not sure what you are asking for? An automated way to ignore files you
don't want check in? Or are you talking about import?

I believe import respects global ignores if you have them set up in your config

In cases like this I perform a "clean" operation that removes compiler
generated files. I would also remove any user specific files as by
definition they should not be part of the repository.
