I'm an RTFM type of person ;-). While I think about it, some way of explicitly searching the list archives would be useful or at least a link to download the whole archive so it can be grep'd. >To omit files in *.svn you would either have to add patterns to the >package-omit-types pref that catch them all or change the >package-file-types pref to include only things like *.py and whatever else >you want.

Unfortunately, I want to include .txt files but Subversion places a README.txt in each .svn directory :-(. >I'm actually a bit surprised we're not matching the omit patterns to >directory names, so if this causes you problems let me know and I can look >at a patch for this. > It would certainly be useful, I could then use the prefs you mention above properly again.

I actually tend to keep project files in a ~/projects directory to avoid polluting the source code repository but I can change that easily enough now I know. Thanks for the quick response.
