Thanks Bob.  You have been very helpful.  I didn't know that there was an html version of the
book.  I've been using the pdf version and haven't found a way to search that.  The global
ignores worked.  Now I'm on to my third repository.  I hate having to lose all the history
I'm accumulated, but that's how it goes.

Thanks again.
JM

Search for "global-ignores" in the single page version of the redbook: http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn-book.html
