>            Priority: Trivial
> Glob patterns are not regular expressions. Both are well-defined and universally understood
concepts. The term "regular expression" is misapplied here.
> The method name "globStatus" indicates that pathPattern should be a glob, but the javadoc
says pathPattern is a regular expression. The documentation goes on to describe the accepted
format of pathPattern and clearly describes globs.
> The term "regular expression" should not be associated with pathPattern.
