I notice that the Ignore menu item is always disabled on folders;  this is very troublesome if you want to exclude build directories from your repository.  
Wouldn't be hard to generate a pattern to match whatever folder it is...

Its simple to add the Ignore support for directories, the issue is how mercurial reports status for files contained in
these ignored dirs, it should report them as ignored but is not:

When this is fixed in mercurial we can simplify a lot of the hacks we've had to put in to work around these Ignore
issues [ignored files are being returned for instance from an ignored directory so on large ignored dirs we got a huge
performance hit and hhad to resort to parsing the .hgignore ourselves, though this is far from ideal].

This issue has now been fixed for a long time, does this mean that it can be resolved in netbeans aswell?
