An SVN hint request

Okay, tonight trying to clean my backlog I’m also blogging quite a bit.

I want to ask something to all the SVN guru out there ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have some packages in KDE’s svn, KNetLoad in extragear/utils and KDigest in playground/utils. The way KDE’s svn is handled, I need a checkout of the files inside extragear/utils and extragear/utils/admin (the same for playground) plus the whole subtree for my package; I don’t really care about the rest of the subtrees.

There’s a way to tell svn to locally ignore all the subdirectories of a checkout a part the ones I tell it not to ignore? ๐Ÿ™‚

I really hope there’s such a feature or updating those trees would be reaaally hard… and I was considering importing into playground a few more projects to avoid stucking them locally…

Well if somebody has a solution, leave a comment ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks!

  1. Personally I just use -NIt only takes top level. Then svn up -N . to update playground/ top directory files and svn up KDigest to update all of that.
