Subject [jira] [Commented] (MPOM-163) apache-rat-plugin exclude .checkstyle file created by Eclipse Checkstyle plugin
Date Sun, 02 Sep 2018 16:57:00 GMT


Hervé Boutemy commented on MPOM-163:

is this request still valid? I checked but could not find any .checktyle line in any .gitignore...

I we do the rat configuration, we need it in Apache parent POM


and opening an issue to RAT to reuse .gitignore seems a very good idea!

>            Priority: Major
> I had trouble with the apache-rat-plugin enforced by the ASF Parent POM because it stumbled
upon and did not like the the .checkstyle files which by the Eclipse Checkstyle plugin (see unfortunately creates at the root of every (Eclipse) project
(= artifact). 
> FYI: These .checkstyle are normally on .gitignore. (PS: What would be really cool would
be if the apache-rat-plugin was smart enough to ignore files that are in .gitignore...)
> Perhaps you'd be open to adding this file to the excludes of the apache-rat-plugin in
the ASF Parent POM?  I'll send you a pull request with a suggestion (if PR on GH are acceptable;
else plz clarify how to contribute; FYI am ASF member).
> In the mean time, it's easy enough to work around using {{-Drat.skip}} - once you understood
what it's not happy about.. ;-)
