Shouldn't we svn:ignore them at a higher level?
I don't know how to: svn:ignore on the base directory with recursive option changes all subdirs and overrides the given setting
You're right, SVN doesn't allow this (git does).
It can be set 'recursively' with
svn propset svn:ignore --recursive
but this just applies the change to all subfolders.
svn propget svn:ignore --recursive
Thus editing it per folder seems the right thing to do! Sorry for the disturbance :-)
