Subject AW: Default excludes and Subversion on Windows
Date Tue, 15 Aug 2006 11:38:57 GMT
"... the svn command line client and svnversion now treat the environment variable SVN_ASP_DOT_NET_HACK
specially on Windows. If this variable is set (to any value), they will use "_svn" instead
of ".svn". We recommend that all Subversion clients running on Windows take advantage of this
behaviour. Note that once the environment variable is set, working copies with standard ".svn"
directories will stop working, and will need to be re-checked-out to get "_svn" instead."

We could check that environment variable and if set add that default exclude (and log a statement).
