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

    [ http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MCLEAN-38?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=148154#action_148154
] 

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?

> I am about to submit a patch to the maven-clean-plugin which will allow a global includes
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.
