Subject [jira] [Commented] (RAT-171) Implicit ignores should include git-ignored files
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2014 12:28:08 GMT


Andrew Phillips commented on RAT-171:

As a more generic solution, would it make sense to remove the default exclusion of ".gitignore"
as a special case? If we first add a mechanism to simply allow the contents of files to be
added, we can always use that to exclude {{.gitignore}} and its contents in a couple of easy

Adding {{.gitignore}} to that set as a default option would seem like a separate change to
me? Also, the title of the issue would then be something like "Allow exclude patterns to be
read from a file or files"?

> The apache-rat-plugin ignores by default the .gitignore files. However, for every file/pattern
added to those files, an explicit exclusion must be set in the plugin's configuration.
> Given that git-ignored files won't be uploaded to the SCM and shouldn't be part of a
release, it would be nice that the apache-rat-plugin automatically considered those git-ignored
files as implicit exclusions.
