> 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.
