Type: New Feature
Affects Version/s: None
Fix Version/s: 2.7
When source files contain scm information (*/.svn/* or */CVS/*), which is pretty much a given, there's currently no way to specify that those directories be excluded except through the GUI. This isn't so much of a problem except that the next time a change is needed and this plugin is ran, it will overwrite this exclusion and will force me to exclude it, by hand, again.
The above case is the driving reason why I decided to get involved and help out. So, I have written everything (I think) that is needed for this enhancement including, adding to the javadoc, creating a new test that verifies this enhancement, and fully testing this with my own projects (many of them @ Struts). If there is anything else I need to do as far as site documentation, please tell me where it is and I'll add it.
This is my first patch to Maven. If this sucks, please don't ignore it, just say 'it sucks, no thanks" and I'll go about working on something else.
Thanks so much for your attention.
