Yeah. I thought so too. I gather that, if the .svn is present, is assumes you're building from scn, but otherwaise, you're building from a source tarball, which isn't quite just source; it contains some files that are build using obsure, hard-to-get tools. At least, they think they're not likely to be in everyone's repertoire, perhaps from platform limitations.

Or you can do something like:

mtn add --no-respect-ignore --recursive

if you just want to add all files in a one off operation, your mtn
config is not changed (normally you would want to ignore the .svn

I hope it still ignores the _MTN diractory!
lol - yes it does :-)
mtn is really good at simply dealing with vendor branches, used this
technique to do a CVS to mtn import.

Exactly.  That's why I want to use monotone for this.  Thanks.

How can I do the recursive mtn add and suppress the .svn suppression?
.svn is in the standard Lua function 'ignore_file'; you can override
that function definition in your ~/.monotone/monotonerc

Or you can add the .svn directly; then it will no longer be ignored.
