Once one has created an svn repository for a rails project, how do you
manage keeping it up to date when many additional files are auto

excluded from the repository.
Most of the generator scripts take a --svn option, which adds the
generated files to the repository. Yes, it is possible and desireable
to exclude log files and temp files. There’s a wiki article that
discusses the questions your raise at length:
