ignore key in mercurial.ini fails
Created originally on Bitbucket by altendky (Kyle Altendorf)
Actually using version 0.7.5.
I have set:
ignore = hglocal\hgignore.txt
in the [ui] section of mercurial.ini (in my user folder). The path is relative to the root of the repository. Any commit or status dialogs warn that they are skipping the ignore file because there is no such file or directory. A call to 'hg status' in the same directory works fine and ignores the appropriate files as described in the ignore file. Renaming the ignore file does cause 'hg status' to warn that it is being skipped.
Perhaps this should be a second request, but I would prefer a quiet warning for skipping ignore files. I plan to use the hglocal folder for non-revisioned optional local files and as such expect the hgignore.txt to be missing most of the time.
