In my new job I’m developing software with the help of svn. There are certain files I don’t want to be managed by svn: moc files, precompiled binaries, Makefiles, etc. This can be done with the

svn propset svn:ignore -F .cvsignore .
Next check with
svn stat which files are not currently under version control and which of them you might want to ignore. Next, call the list of ignored files:
svn propedit svn:ignore .
Add the files which you would like to ignore here and close your editor. In my case the list looks like:
*moc.cpp *moc Makefile Makefile.in rc.cpp .libs .deps myapp
