I am working on a multi-module Intellij project that uses maven and subversion. These don't go well together.
The module files are generated from the maven pom.xml files. Because they are generated, we don't want to check them into subversion. But Intellij insists on placing these files in the source hierarchy.
svn:ignore is a pretty poor solution for us because we have many modules (probably more than we should). Using svn -R propset to ignore iml files does an OVERWRITE of svn:ignore, causing other ignores to be lost.
What I'd really like is the ability to keep the iml files out of the source hierarchy. Is there a way to do this? If not, I think there should be. I'm a longtime Intellij user, and it used to be possible (Version 6? Maybe before that) to specify different directories for project files and sources.
