Philipp Ottlinger commented on RAT-246:

The plugin recognizes the entry in .gitignore as a run with debug options show:
[INFO] 11 resources included (use -debug for more details)
[DEBUG]  - included .someignoredfile
[DEBUG]  - included src/site/apt/index.apt
[DEBUG]  - included src/site/apt/usage.apt.vm
[DEBUG]  - included src/site/site.xml
[DEBUG]  - included

[INFO] Rat check: Summary over all files. Unapproved: 1, unknown: 1, generated: 
0, approved: 10 licenses.

I assume that the dot makes problem with the "conversion" into a regular 
expression ....

>                 Key: RAT-246
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RAT-246
>             Project: Apache Rat
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.12, 0.13
>            Reporter: Ilya Basin
>            Priority: Minor
> 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.
> {code:java}
> [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:
> wagon-providers/wagon-scm/.someignoredfile
> Use -f if you really want to add them.
> fatal: no files added
> [il@reallin wagon-scm]$ mvn apache-rat:check
> [ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.rat:apache-rat-plugin:0.12:check 
> (default-cli) on project wagon-scm: Too many files with unapproved license: 1 
> See RAT report in: target/rat.txt -> [Help 1]
> [il@reallin wagon-scm]$ cat target/rat.txt
> Files with unapproved licenses:
>   .someignoredfile
> [il@reallin wagon-scm]$ echo .someignoredfile >>.gitignore
> [il@reallin wagon-scm]$ mvn apache-rat:check
> {code}
