Disable Netbeans automatic svn ignore?
How do I stop Netbeans from automatically
svn ignore-ing “
I use Netbeans as my main development environment, but I often use gvim at the same time for quick edits. gvim creates temporary files with the .swp extension, and Netbeans seems to be scanning my code folders and adding an
svn ignore property for these files.
I can see how this would be useful to people, but I want to disable it – the .swp files don’t show up as being unversioned anyway, so they’re not a problem, but the directory modifications caused by the
svn ignore‘s just creates a load of modification spam when I’m using the svn command line interface.
Any idea how I can disable this feature?
