Subject [jira] Commented: (MCLEAN-38) Allow a global set of include and exclude filters
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2008 12:53:48 GMT


Benjamin Bentmann commented on MCLEAN-38:

bq. It also allows other plugins (this is my use case), which are bound to the pre-clean phase
to set this property on the project to avoid specific files being deleted when clean is run.
Out of curiosity, could you give some more details on this? For instance, what generated the
files to exclude, your plugin or something else? If the files should be excluded from cleaning,
why aren't they put somewhere else? How can they ever be deleted by Maven or isn't that intended?

and excludes patterns to be configured.
> Currently, it is not possibly to easily do a clean and have specific files in the default
output directories preserved.
> The patch will allow a comma separated list of exclusions and inclusions to use when
removing the default output directories.
