The fix for
JENKINS-13165 seems to have been to create a hook that plugins can use to optionally override the new (@#$!@$) Ant default excludes, which now include .git/.gitignore, etc. I would like for the Clone Workspace plugin to override these defaults, or at least give me a check box to do that.
To reproduce the problem, create a job which touches a file named .gitignore, and publish that job's workspace for archiving. Then create another job which pulls over that archive and does an 'ls -la' in it. The .gitignore file won't be there.
