According to the CVS doc (chapter C.5), it reads: "...CVS has a list of files (or sh(1) file name patterns) that it should ignore while running update, import and release. This list is constructed in the following way. a.. The list is initialized to include certain file name patterns: names associated with CVS administration, or with other common source control systems; common names for patch files, object files, archive files, and editor backup files; and other names that are usually artifacts of assorted utilities. Currently, the default list of ignored file name patterns is: RCS SCCS CVS CVS.adm RCSLOG cvslog.* tags TAGS .make.state .nse_depinfo *~ #* .#* ,* _$* *$ *.old *.bak *.BAK *.orig *.rej .del-* *.a *.olb *.o *.obj *.so *.exe *.Z *.elc *.ln core a.. The per-repository list in `$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/cvsignore' is appended to the list, if that file exists. . b.. The per-user list in `.cvsignore' in your home directory is appended to the list, if it exists. c.. Any entries in the environment variable $CVSIGNORE is appended to the list. d.. Any `-I' options given to CVS is appended. e.. As CVS traverses through your directories, the contents of any `.cvsignore' will be appended to the list. The patterns found in `.cvsignore' are only valid for the directory that contains them, not for any sub-directories. ..." CVSNT does not seem to honor the per-repository list in `$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/cvsignore' . This file contains in my case simply the following entries : classes *.class as, for instance, all of the class files in my Java projects show up as 'non-cvs' . However, when I provide a local .cvsignore file (containing the same entries) for each of my top-level Java project folder, the classes folder, as well as all the class files are hidden.
