Excluding certain files from "Pending Changes"

My build process involves checking some files into the source tree currently. After a successful build, these committed files immediately show up as "Pending Changes" for the next build. These files are committed with a special "builder" account that is only used by the official build server.

I can disable build triggering successfully for these changes using the " -:user=builder:/src/*/ " syntax.

Is it possible to use this same (or similar) syntax in the checkout rules so that files committed by the "builder" user will be ignored and not shown in "Pending Changes"?

I tried using the -:user syntax but got a warning about performance that scared me off. I am having TeamCity perform the checkout on the agent. Not that I am using Subversion 1.5.x for source control.

What is the proper way to have all commits from a single user ignored from the perspective of "Pending Changes"?

Thanks,
Jeremy

Files excluded with help of checkout rules won't appear in the agent checkout directory. Is that what you need?

I don't care about what actually gets checked out on the agent. What I care about is what is displayed in the web UI.

I don't want the web UI to report any files as changed in the "Pending Changes" of the UI for a specific user. I basically want files from a specific user ignored and not displayed from the perspective of the "Pending Changes" display.

Does that make sense?

Is there a way to accomplish this?

Please ignore the earlier message, the fix is available in TC 4.5.x builds. We can use "Trigger Patterns" to exclude certain file from "Pending Changes"
