#25337 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add svn:ignore for common wp-content folders

Reported by: dd32 Owned by: dd32

We have a bunch of folders in wp-content which we don't really need showing in svn diff's, we should add them as a svn:ignore property.


  svn:ignore mu-plugins uploads upgrade
  svn:ignore *
  svn:ignore *

Any modifications to files within versioned files will still show in svn diff's, and any unversioned files within versioned theme directories will still show.
This will just hide the long list of plugin / themes which a developer has installed, as well as the dynamically created folders inside wp-content.

Is there any reason I'm missing why this would be bad idea?

Seems logical, as long as the default themes' versioning isn't affected.

Add a svn:ignore property to wp-content, wp-content/plugins, and, wp-content/themes to clean up the output of a svn status, this means that plugins/themes/uploads won't clutter the svn status output. Fixes #25337 See #24976
