Subject [jira] [Commented] (RAT-171) Allow exclude patterns to be read from a file or files
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2014 18:58:08 GMT


Philipp Ottlinger commented on RAT-171:

Thanks for your patch - I do assume that we could do two things:

* add all of the various scm directories and their ignore files as defaultExcludes (e.g. .git
and .gitignore and .hg and .hgignore)
* provide an additional configuration to automatically add files/directories to exclude from
ignore files

[~nacx][~gaul][~andrewp] Would that be useful for you?

> 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.
