How can I find all the directories in my svn repository with the property of svn:ignore?

svn propget -R svn:ignore

find . -type d > folders.txt then copy the content of folders.txt (without the first line) to the svn:ingore file

You can also send the output of find directly into the svn:ingore file

Seems to be a misunderstanding: The question is about finding dirs with "svn:ignore", not setting it. – sleske May 17 '10 at 15:13
