Ignasi Barrera updated RAT-171:
    Attachment: RAT-171.patch

Following my last comment, I've removed the default processing of the 
.gitignore file. That should be better accomplished in 
[https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RAT-172|RAT-172], as each SCM has its 
own syntax and valid patterns that might not be the same used by the Plexus 

The remaining patch just adds the {{useExclusionsFromFiles}} configuration 
property so users can have a "rat exclusions file" with all exclusions there, 
leaving the pom.xml a bit more clean. This can also be used to exclude files 
from SCM ignore files if needed.

> Allow exclude patterns to be read from a file or files

> The apache-rat-plugin ignores by default the .gitignore files. However, for 
> every file/pattern added to those files, an explicit exclusion must be set in 
> the plugin's configuration.
> Given that git-ignored files won't be uploaded to the SCM and shouldn't be 
> part of a release, it would be nice that the apache-rat-plugin automatically 
> considered those git-ignored files as implicit exclusions.
