.bzrignore check-in into subversion

Asked by Ovanes Markarian

Hello *,

I currently use bazaar + bzr-svn as a front-end to subversion repository in a large enterprize. The problem I currently face that if I create .bzrignore and add/commit it with bazaar it is also submitted into the svn-repository. I don't think this is the way it should behave. Why should this bazaar specific file be in the svn-repo. If for example people are going to use git or any other vcs svn-repo might get "poluted" with useless info from the Subversion point of view. Is there any way to avoid commiting .bzrignore to subversion?

Many thanks,

This is a known issue, but a hard one to properly fix - to do so we need to convert between the svn:ignore property and .bzrignore. I'll link the relevant bug report to this question.

The only workaround I'm aware of is to have a local .bzrignore but to not version it.

But having it local, means that I can't use a unified .bzrignore between my local branches. E.g. if I checkout an svn repo with bzr and afterwards create a local .bzrignore on the checked out version I cannot and do a branch from I am not going to get the .bzrignore in the new branch. Is this correct?
