Subject [jira] [Updated] (RAT-171) Allow exclude patterns to be read from a file or files
Date Sat, 06 Sep 2014 20:48:28 GMT


Ignasi Barrera updated RAT-171:
    Attachment: RAT-171.patch

Following my last comment, I've removed the default processing of the .gitignore file. That
should be better accomplished in [|RAT-172],
as each SCM has its own syntax and valid patterns that might not be the same used by the Plexus

The remaining patch just adds the {{useExclusionsFromFiles}} configuration property so users
can have a "rat exclusions file" with all exclusions there, leaving the pom.xml a bit more
clean. This can also be used to exclude files from SCM ignore files if needed.

> 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.
