Many uncommited new files exist under subversion

Check out imagej via subversion. Load it into Eclipse. After building Eclipse notices many files it thinks are new to the project (related to the updater). If you try a commit many new files are tagged. This may be confusing for outside developers. We need to fix this so that users see nothing that needs to be committed after a fresh checkout and build.

Fixed in 2a8f2ba5b012e065e12c04d6ff0e43596ea91bfe.

This problem occurs when the svn:ignore property is not set properly in newly added project directories.

It is easy to fix, as follows:

  : get a list of unknown files
  $ svn st

  : for each new leaf project, add three files
  : to the ignore list, one per line:
  :   .classpath
  :   .project
  :   target
  $ svn pe svn:ignore ui/platform-windows

  : for each new aggregator project, add 2 files
  : to the ignore list, one per line:
  :   .project
  :   .settings
  $ svn pe svn:ignore core/updater

  : check remaining list of unknown files
  $ svn st

  : for each remaining .settings folder, ignore all files
  $ svn ps svn:ignore '*' core/updater/core/.settings

  : verify no question marks remain
  $ svn st

  : commit updated properties
  $ svn ci -m "Ignore Eclipse metadata"

It's also worth noting that this problem will cease to exist once we switch back to Git.
