Obliterate or exclude folders from version control

Message Hi all,

First of all, I agree that svn should have an obliterate functionality.

In addition to that, I wonder if anyone else but me would like the possibility of excluding folders or files in an svn repository from version control.

Each commit on a file with this special property would replace the existing entry in the repository instead of adding a delta, but the repository does get a new revision number, so clients know when their working copy is outdated.

This would allow you to use a subversion repository both for source/documentation control and for storing for example big binary build results, without the need to obliterate older versions.

For relatively small projects, the environment can be much simpler: just one svn repository and no need for other repositories/filesha​res/workspaces/etc for storing your builds or other binary data for reuse.
Another advantage is the sources and builds are accessible by the same svn client.

And you would have the possibility to store project data that does not need version control (project photo's, mailbox, etc).

What do you think of it?

BR,
Mariska.
