Subject RAT running nicely against Forrest with excludes
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2009 22:44:52 GMT
Thanks to RAT, Ant, Buildbot, Gump, ...

License header scanning for Forrest is now being regularly done
using the Ant task for RAT and an "excludes" file. This enables
us to neatly exclude stuff that should not be checked.

We run both Buildbot and Gump, and hold the exclude list as
a single file in the Forrest SVN.

[1] Gump descriptor
See the "forrest-rat" entry, which refers to the "gump-rat" target
in forrest/trunk/main/build.xml
which uses the "excludes" file at forrest/trunk/etc/rat-avoid.txt

I did used to do scanning and license header fixing using
my old committers/relicense/src/perl/|txt
After getting a similar exclusions list working with RAT
we now have nice correlation of reports. Good work, RAT.
