Subversion commit and ignored files

Just a quick note for provide a solution to a problem that, sometimes, can happen during a subversion commit operation. Subversion, frequently abbreviated as SVN, is a software versioning and revision control system distributed under an open source license. I will not explain here how to use subversion since if you know them you surely already know how to use it. On the contrary, if you don't know it probably you don't need them. Anyway if you make a commit operation of a large number of files containing also binary file like precompiled libraries and so on keep attention since is possible (especially under Linux) that some type of file are automatically included in a special list of ignored files. This mean these files ignored by subversion will not be added to the commit without give you any advise of that.
