The svn:ignore properties is for ignoring *unversioned* files usually
generated during a build. It does not work to ignore files form merging,
which, by definition, works on files under version control only. Also,
if you put a file explicitly under version control, the svn:ignore
property no longer applies to it at all.

With kind regards,
