Subject [jira] [Created] (RAT-157) Use the *ignore file for the SCM to determine excludes
Date Thu, 28 Nov 2013 16:32:37 GMT
lucas theisen created RAT-157:

             Summary: Use the *ignore file for the SCM to determine excludes
                 Key: RAT-157
             Project: Apache Rat
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: lucas theisen
            Priority: Minor

As I understand it, RAT is used to ensure the LICENSE text is in all source files.  Anything
ignored by SCM is not technically a source file.  These other files are usually specific to
the developer environment.  And the developer will already be adding such files to their own
`SCMignore`.  Perhaps a pluggable ingore mechanism that could have an implementation per SCM
and would know how to parse that ignore and translate filter out all the files it specifies.
 Perhaps this could be an option to the the rat config `useGitIgnore` or something.  What
do you think?
