Subject [Bug 55543] New: add a "verbose" parameter to "exclude", "include", etc.

            Bug ID: 55543
           Summary: add a "verbose" parameter to "exclude", "include",
                    etc.
           Product: Ant
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core tasks
          Assignee: notifications@ant.apache.org
          Reporter: hauser@acm.org

there are dozens of invalid bug reports on "exclude" or "include" e.g. when
used nested inside the javac task (Bug 37148, Bug 40718, ..).

normally, the recommendation is <<run ant with the -debug option>> and yes,
this is likely to help. But it is a nuisance.
In particular if your build.xml is a little bit bigger, you possibly spend the
first half hour just to find the particular exclude statement you really are
after in the overwhelming bulk of debug output.

Conclusion, the exclude/include mechanisms are likely to be mature an almost
without errors, but average developers waste a lot of time with them to get
them right...

if the <exclude name=... > tag would have an option parameter 'verbose="true"'
that turns on the debug output only when near that tag, searching for my errors
when using these tags would be a lot more effective!
