Description (last modified by dkocher) (diff)

The current default value for "Skip files matching the regular expression" under "Downloads" and "Uploads" on the Advanced tab of the Transfers Preference panel is:

  .*~\..*|\.DS_Store|\.svn|CVS

I suggest that it be changed to:

  .*~\..*|\.DS_Store|\.svn|CVS|\.git

(i.e. adding a pattern for git archives).

Pros: this rule is coherent with restricting svn data, which is already in the default.

Cons: the proposed default will prevent effective backup of local .git repositories. Maybe only the Downloads default should be modified?
