.DS_Store

[ #9440 ]
brian d foy, the comment-free boy, posted a gripe about .DS_Store and how he removes it cronly.

Personally, I just make sure that CVS doesn't store it anywhere in any CVS project by adding a line ".DS_Store" to the cvsignore file in the CVSROOT project on my CVS server. Problem solved.

  • I've been cvsignoring .DS_Store for some time now. It works fine in Mac OS X and maccvsX, although I never figured out how to get ignore to work with maccvs (read: as opposed to maccvsX).
  • .DS_Store is in my global cvsignore too. I just don't like that it is around and that I have to see it with `ls -a` or anything else that goes through all of the files in a directory, like `make manifest`.
