Subject [jira] [Commented] (RAT-171) Allow exclude patterns to be read from a file or files
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2014 19:24:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RAT-171?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14114203#comment-14114203

Andrew Phillips commented on RAT-171:
-------------------------------------

> I think it should also exclude its contents, and that does not look like a special case
to me.

Sorry, I probably wasn't clear: I agree that, if {{.gitignore}} is already "known" to the
plugin as something to exclude by default, it makes sense to exclude all the contents of {{.gitignore}},
too. I just meant that, as [~hugo.hirsch] points out, the same goes for things like {{.hgignore}}
too.

[~hugo.hirsch]: What you suggest sounds like exactly what's needed, if I'm understanding it
correctly. Thanks!

> 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.
