------- Additional Comments From thom@nowhereatall.com  2005-08-17 00:54 -------
This fix worked. I would like to re-open this bug as a documentation bug because
there is no documentation on how excludes works and I would still be working
with this one if a developer hadn't explained this to me.

Under fileset, there are examples displaying the "**/" type of excludes, but
absolutely no documentation explaining what this MEANS.

Also, if this is the way excludes works, then why does the debug display

Tar$TarFileSet: Setup scanner in dir /home/ThomHehl/src/Javacode/rex/distrib
with patternSet{ includes: [] excludes:
[/home/ThomHehl/src/Javacode/rex/distrib/*.cgi,
/home/ThomHehl/src/Javacode/rex/distrib/*.pl,
/home/ThomHehl/src/Javacode/rex/distrib/rexml.jar] }

Showing exactly the right file in the debug message, but is not evidently the
file it was really going to exclude.

I think both the debug and the docs need further work.
