Description puce 2009-03-17 12:48:27 UTC
The Subversion support suddenly shows changes/ wants to commit stuff in the ignored directory build/cluster of my Module
Suite project!

I tried to clean up Subversion (using TortoiseSVN) but this had no effect. (Tortoise doesn't list these files by the way.)

The "Files"-tab of the IDE correctly shows the the build-directory as ignored. Still stuff inside build/cluster gets listed!

Things like this can be very dangerous for a project (repository)!!! -> P1
Comment 1 puce 2009-03-17 13:06:31 UTC
I found a work-around:
Call "Clean All" on the Module Suite project ("Clean and Build All" is not enough.)

Still, this defective behavior exists and is dangerous!
Comment 2 Ondrej Vrabec 2009-03-17 13:44:26 UTC
this does not happen to me. Could you please provide more information?

1) What do you mean by suddenly? It worked a while ago and now NB try to commit ignored files?
2) Does this happen with other projects, too? If it does, could you create a simple example and attach it as an attachment?
3) What build are you using, could you attach the message log? ~/.netbeans/6.5/var/log/message.log
4) Does this happen after IDE restart?
5) Could you try to invoke 'svn propget svn:ignore' in the commandline in the project folder and report the result that
svn returns?
6) Are you referring to a Netbeans module suite project?
7) Would it be possible to send me (on my private email) working copy of that project?

Comment 3 puce 2009-03-17 14:37:19 UTC
Yes, it worked, then suddenly NetBeans IDE wanted to add files of an ignored directory. I think I did an IDE restart,
but this didn't help. After "Clean All" everything works fine again, currently, and I don't know how to reproduce that

It's the first time that happened, though I had also other issues with svn support, eg. leaving out some jars (in
Library Wrapper Modules). I will file a separate issue if I see that one again.

I'm working currently on a NetBeans Platform application.

I use the "Subversion 1.5 for Windows" bridge due to the Subversion client <-> cygwin problem.

OK, if you came across this again, attach the message log, test 'svn status' in command line, possibly send me the
working copy (even without sources).

I am lowering the priority, since you have found a WA and adding INCOMPLETE

We were able to reproduce this, but it should be fixed in #a4a8a6e6783c
