Ilya Basin created RAT-246:

             Summary: .gitignore in parent dir not honored
                 Key: RAT-246
             Project: Apache Rat
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.12, 0.13
            Reporter: Ilya Basin

Due to my Eclipse plugins set, when I import a maven project, a .checkstyle 
file is generated there. As I learned later, RAT 0.13-SNAPSHOT ignores 
.checkstyle files, so I repeated my tests with a different filename.

If a pattern is explicitly mentioned in the .gitignore in the project folder, 
RAT does not complain. However, if the pattern is only mentioned in a parent 
.gitignore, the RAT check fails.
[il@reallin wagon-scm]$ touch .someignoredfile
[il@reallin wagon-scm]$ echo .someignoredfile >>../../.gitignore

[il@reallin wagon-scm]$ git add .someignoredfile
The following paths are ignored by one of your .gitignore files:
Use -f if you really want to add them.
fatal: no files added
