Subject [jira] Commented: (MCLEAN-38) Allow a global set of include and exclude filters
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2008 07:33:48 GMT


Benjamin Bentmann commented on MCLEAN-38:

Not sure whether we really need this extra complexity. With the fix for MCLEAN-33, one could
simply exclude the default directories from cleaning and employ the {{filesets}} parameter
instead which already provides includes/excludes.

Also, I am not in favor of specifying the includes/excludes all in one simple string given
that these patterns are usually provided by means of a real collection. That is to say, the
usage would become inconsistent IMHO.

Can you elaborate more on your specific use case?
