SVN ignore property

Nathael Pajani-2
Hi all

Just a simple suggestion for the svn repository:

Add some ignore properties for some generated files (ps and pdf)

  svn propedit svn:ignore .
  *.ps
  *.pdf
  *.gz


And maybe for the gta02-core library :

  svn propedit svn:ignore components/
  gta02-core.lib



have fun :)

Hmm, when I do an "svn status" in gta02-core, I get about 190 "junk"
files, many of them of just local relevance. I guess I'm just not
very tidy :)

Considering that everyone still has the local files to worry about,
even if we meticulously take care of telling SVN about all the
generated ones (and track all changes for their effect on generated
files), this seems more like tamagotchi-sitting to me :)

I also think we shouldn't optimize too much for SVN. One day, we
may want to switch to git and enjoy the vastly superior performance
of local operations, and then any SVN-specific meta-data becomes a
burden.
