#2883 closed enhancement (somebody else's problem)

Make magic-folder ignore-conditions user-configurable

Reported by: cypher Owned by: daira
Priority: minor Milestone: undecided
Component: code-frontend-magic-folder Version: 1.12.1
Keywords: magic-folder Cc:
Launchpad Bug:


As it currently stands, magic-folder's magicpath module is hardcoded to ignore certain filename prefixes and suffixes

There may, however, be situations or use-cases in which users may want to bypass this behavior and/or (more likely) ignore additional files matching other patterns that are not included in these lists.

Accordingly, it could be useful to make ignore patterns user-configurable (perhaps via a mechanism similar to tahoe backups --exclude-from functionality, whereby ignore patterns can be specified in a file).
