Build fails with junk subdirectories in "scratch" directory
Last modified: 2008-11-18 09:06:53 EST
For example, in "scratch" there are subdirectories, named like "CVS" or ".svn", created by another version control system.
Theses subdirectories are needed for proper functioning of these version control systems and shouldn't be deleted.
So let's teach "wscript" to ignore them.
Maybe it will be enough to just skip all directories and files starting with ".".
In other words:
1) Steps to Reproduce
Add any ns release to some version control system.
Run ./waf configure; ./waf build
2) Actual Results
Build fails due to special directories in "scratch"
3) Expected Results
Build system should silently skip special directories in "scratch"
