SVN Questions

Hi,

I recently switched from Eclipse to IntelliJ and I'm trying to figure out a couple things I used to be able to do in Eclipse with SVN:

1. After updating my projects from SVN I can get the Update Project Info to display what got updated from the server, what I've added or changed, etc. However, I cannot find a way to see the commit comments from incoming changes. In Eclipse there was an icon I could select for any kind of VCS that would allow me to see commit comments for each incoming change. Is there a way to see the comments in IntelliJ?

2. When I perform a commit I'm having trouble getting IntelliJ to ignore a file that is supposed to be included on the svn:ignore list. The strange thing is when I go to Subversion->Check Directory Status, it does ignore this file. But when I hit Ctrl+K to commit, it always shows up on there if I have modified it during the current session. Other files do get ignored like they are supposed to, the only difference is this file is ignored only if it is in a specific directory, whereas the other files that get ignored can be in any directory.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Ben

I should clarify for the 2nd question, I have several files which are ignored properly, which have been setup on the svn:ignore list for our top-most directory. The file which is not being ignored is in a directory further down the hierarchy. That directory is listed on the svn:ignore list for its parent directory.

Ben,

What version/build of IDEA are you using?
FYI - there have been significant SVN changes in the EAP codebase compared to 6.0.x.

If you are open to trying out the EAP (early access program), I would test the same issue on the latest build:

In either case, you can always submit bugs here:

Thanks for the links, I'll try out Selena and see if it takes care of these issues.

Ben - if you had the chance to try it, how were your issues under Selena?

Well it crashed a couple times soon after I started using it so I don't think it is stable enough to use for now. I thought I saw a way to group incoming SVN changes by change set so perhaps there is a way in that view to see the commit comments but I didn't get it to a point where that seemed to work. I didn't have a chance to test whether the file that wasn't supposed to get committed was still showing up when I tried to commit.
