When you build with Gradle, it creates a .gradle file in the directory in which the build command is issued. This directory contains various operational files and directories for Gradle and should not be checked in.

The best way to do this is to edit the .subversion/config file in your home directory and add the following under the miscellany section.

global-ignores = .gradle

global-ignores = .gradle dependencies.txt

And in the .gitignore file for Git module repositories it would be this:


Or, if your Git repository contains multiple modules:
