I think it should, because the user can easily say "/a**f" that nested paths should not be matched. But if it does not match, as your documentation update implies, which options does the user have to match nested paths? Only to add more patterns for each nested directory, such as "b/a**f". -- Hannes -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
