Description Tim Lebedkov 2004-08-25 19:06:24 UTC
.cvsignore files are not visible but their content
is not used to filter files. Please change at
least the setting under Options/IDE
Configuration/System/System Settings/Ignored Files

The best solution would be to hide .cvsignore
files and support additional commands like "ignore
this file" and "ignore all files that match this
Comment 1 Richard Gregor 2004-09-16 10:33:18 UTC

I think this is rather enhancement than defect. It's a good idea and
will be considered for next release.
Comment 2 Maros Sandor 2005-05-03 14:38:24 UTC
Moving to CVSlite.
Comment 3 Maros Sandor 2005-05-03 14:40:38 UTC
CVSlite provides "Ignore" and "Unignore" commands that add/remove files and
directories to/from .cvignore. I'm changing summary accordingly.
Comment 4 Maros Sandor 2005-05-13 10:17:54 UTC
CVSlite provides various means of ignoring files: server-side cvsignore,
~/.cvsignore, per-directory .cvsignore and Ignore/Unignore commands for
individual files. Marking as fixed.
Comment 5 Tim Lebedkov 2005-09-12 15:56:00 UTC
Ignore/Unignore for *file patterns* does not seem to be implemented yet
as in netbeans-4_2-qbuild-bin-200509081355-windows-8_Sep_2005_1355.exe
Comment 6 Maros Sandor 2005-10-25 16:05:38 UTC
Limited support for file patterns is implemented for .cvsignore files in 5.0.
Moving full support to future.
