Subject Re: Apache Flex in Github

To avoid things from svn goes to git and viceversa these are the key 2
points in the article you posted:


   1. In Subversion, add .git to the svn:ignore properties (or global
   ignore).
   2. Tell Git to exclude .svn/ folders with .gitignore, or set the
   core.excludesfile property in your global Git config.

This is what we did at work.
