I just set up svn and did a checkout.
When I set up the repository, I did an import of the entire base
directory of the rails application which was great because it allowed me
to do a checkout on to my computer with everything.
Of course, now on my home computer, I’ve got a changed database.yml and
environment.rb and the log files (because I’ve been running a copy on my
home system), and I would suspect that I really only want app and public
directories (though the doc and plugins would be nice to manage with
I am not at all familiar with svn. I’ve changed some view code and some
controller code and I don’t want to ‘commit’ until I’ve protected some
of the other files.
Is it better to just create separate repositories for app and public
directories or is there a way to tell svn to exclude config, root level,
and log folders while keeping the whole enchilada? I ask because as I’m
reading the svnbook.red-book.com stuff, nothing is jumping out at me.
