Hello all, 

I like to use Ansible to remove few packages, but it seem not to support 
the wildecard option for package name matching.

- name: Remove Packages
   name: "{{ item }}"
   state: absent
   - packages_remove
   - b43-*
   - hexchat
   - libreoffice*

In the above example I was expecting the for "b43-*" to match b43-openfwwf 
and b43-fwcutter but non of them was removed.
same for libreoffice, here is the output with -vvv

ok: [localhost] => (item=libreoffice*) => {
    "changed": false, 
    "invocation": {
        "module_args": {
            "autoremove": null, 
            "conf_file": null, 
            "disable_gpg_check": false, 
            "disablerepo": [], 
            "enablerepo": [], 
            "installroot": "/", 
            "list": null, 
            "name": [
            "state": "absent"
    "item": "libreoffice*", 
    "msg": "Nothing to do"

Any hints ?
