bzr-upload ignoring the bzrignore-upload file

Asked by Patrick Goddard on 2010-08-19

I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong, but I have a .bzrignore-upload file set to ignore certain certain directories (that a) have symlinks and b) don't want uploaded), however when I run bzr upload whatever, it uploads everything. What am I doing wrong? I have the same syntax as in the .bzrignore file for a directory.

Is there a new bug I am unaware of and/or do you mind stating and example of the syntax for a directory?

Simple as:

files

no?

Thanks for your help.

That seems correct to me. One trick is that, looking at the code,
bzr-upload seems to use the last committed version of the
.bzrignore-upload file, so you do have to add and commit it.

I seem to be encountering this too. will do some more debugging to figure out what exactly is happening.

Pat - you might be interested in bzr view

bazaar views have some nice uses in a Drupal multisite development workflow.

Try issuing 'bzr ls --versioned' and make sure '.bzrignore-upload' appears there.

Will check these out.

I finally got bzr upload to work, but only if I initialized files, created ignore file, created upload ignore file, THEN added and committed files. I also did some testing with revid, and uploading the initial files via ftp outside of bzr. In any case, whatever I did is working now.

That's the important part. Until .bzrignore-upload is *committed*, it won't be taken into account.

The reason is that you can change which files are ignored from one revision to the other.

Can you help with this problem?
