Success!!!

Changed Rob's script to use apply instead of delete

<apply executable="rm" dir="/opt/stratalight/packages" >
    <arg value="-r" />
    <arg value="-f" />
    <dirset dir="/opt/stratalight/packages" excludes="${directories}"
followsymlinks="true">
            <include name="*/**" />
    </dirset>
</apply>

Now it works perfectly.  Out of curiosity - anyone know why??

Thanks Rob - 

I tried your exact test and it worked fine as well.  Then I just changed
your test.xml to point to my directory and changed the properties file
to my list and it does not work.  There must be something odd about my
directory structure - there are a lot of symbolic links in my
directories so I am wondering it that is an issue?  What I really want
is

rm -rf 

on the directories not in my list.  Perhaps apply would work??

Hmm, Not sure why there is still a problem. I setup a simple test that
is similar to your situation like this...

mkdir -p test/A test/B test/C test/D test/E
touch test/A/new test/B/new test/C/new test/D/new test/E/new

Then I made the following build.xml...
<project name="test" default="deltest">
<property file="build.properties"/>
<target name="deltest">
<delete includeemptydirs="true" >
  <fileset dir="test" excludes="${directories}">
	  <include name="*/**"/>
  </fileset>
</delete>
</target>
</project>

And a build.properties file...
directories=A/**\ B/**\ C/**

Running ant -debug deltest shows it working OK for me...
fileset: Setup scanner in dir C:\cygwin\home\rob\test with patternSet{
includes: [*/**] excludes: [A/**, B/**, C/**] }
   [delete] Deleting 2 files from C:\cygwin\home\rob\test
   [delete] Deleting C:\cygwin\home\rob\test\D\new
   [delete] Deleting C:\cygwin\home\rob\test\E\new
   [delete] Deleting C:\cygwin\home\rob\test\E
   [delete] Deleting C:\cygwin\home\rob\test\D
   [delete] Deleted 2 directories from C:\cygwin\home\rob\test

Perhap there is nothing to delete that is not excluded?
