> It would be good to clarify the {{%regex ...}} feature:
> 1. While it is said to be regular expression, it really is a {{regular expression + ".class"}}
kind of thing. This does not work (while it is proper regex):
> {noformat}.+\.class{noformat} The following works (while it is not proper regex): {noformat}.+.class{noformat}
> 2. Clarify that one is supposed to match slashes between packages and class name, not
periods. The following [current documentation|http://maven.apache.org/components/surefire/maven-surefire-plugin/examples/inclusion-exclusion.html]
doesn't clarify that by just using "{{.*}}": {noformat}!%regex[pkg.*Slow.*.class]{noformat}
> 3. Clarify what the expectations are in terms of escaping characters
> I just spend literally ten hours figuring out a complex regex, going into TeamCity (which
by itself complicated the troubleshooting for me), and the documentation could have saved
my butt, here.
