Wishlist: Auto Exclude List should support globs

Issue #1089 open
created an issue


It would be extremely nice if the Auto Exclude List in the Commit settings of TortoiseHg would support globs - like , .cs, *.xml or whatever the things are that you want to exclude.

My normal usage pattern is that I always (or almost always) exclude all files when I want to commit. Then, I specifically checkmark those files that relate to each other, write a comment for those, and perform the commit. When working like this, it's a bit annoying to have to manually uncheck them all first, every single time.

So, that's why this issue would be really nice to have implemented at some point.

    Another issue with the Auto Exclude List is that you can't add files to it from the commit dialogue. Could this be added please?

    Also cant make it work with files in subfolders. Like "Client/Properties/AssemblyInfo.cs" - don't work any of following: AssemblyInfo.cs *AssemblyInfo.cs "AssemblyInfo.cs" Client/Properties/AssemblyInfo.cs

    I would like to see these improvements as well.

    Additionally, it would be nice if there was some sort of GUI similar to TortoiseSVN's changelist organization. I'd like these auto excluded files to show up separately somehow in the list.
