#2428 closed defect (fixed)

drop-upload: don't upload "hidden" files, or files under "hidden" directories

Reported by: daira Owned by: daira
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.12.0
Component: code-frontend-magic-folder Version: 1.10.0
Keywords: drop-upload, docs, magic-folder Cc:
Launchpad Bug:


A hidden file/directory is one that has a name starting with ".", or that has the hidden or system attribute on Windows. The motivation for not uploading these is that they are often used for temporary files. This behaviour needs to be clearly documented.

When we implement remote-to-local sync for Magic Folder, there will be other categories of names that shouldn't be synced.
