Dear future self

When you are working with SVN and trying to svn:ignore a file...

Stop.

And remember, that as this lovely gentleman clarifies it so nicely:

You don’t svn:ignore a file.
You put an svn:ignore property on the directory to ignore that filename pattern!

Thank you kind sir, the time and frustration you saved me have been reallocated to more important matters.
