git style ignores with subversion

This script looks for files named `.svnignore` in the current directory along with all of its nested directories and ignores the patterns found in them

It can handle basic ignores, patterns (with *), recursive patterns (with **), and ignoring multiple files/patterns in the same directory

Installation

gem install svnignore

Usage

Move into the root of your svn project (`cd ~/Projects/project_name`) and run `svnignore`

Here's a sample `.svnignore` file that I frequently use with rails projects

**/.DS_Store
config/application_settings.yml
config/database.yml
db/*.sqlite3
log/*.log
tmp/*

In this case, the script would parse those patterns and execute the following commands

svn propset svn:ignore -R '.DS_Store' .
svn propset svn:ignore -F some_temp_file config/
svn propset svn:ignore '*.sqlite3' db/
svn propset svn:ignore '*.log' log/
svn propset svn:ignore '*' tmp/

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

* Fork the project.
* Make your feature addition or bug fix.
* Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a
  future version unintentionally.
* Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history.
  (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but
   bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
* Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
