Recursively ignore "target" directory in svn

Suppose you are working with maven and svn tries to add target, what you can do to recursively ignore the target directory is:

svn propset -R svn:ignore target .

or you can do the following:


$> svn ps svn:ignore 'target
eclipse-target' .


Remember that each ignorable entity should be on one line.

anil@localhost:~/identity/identity-doc/trunk$ svn -R propset svn:ignore '.classpath
> .project
> .metadata
> target
> target-eclipse' .
property 'svn:ignore' set (recursively) on '.'
