      Description

      I would like to suggest an option to allow exclusions for git clean. Currently, when "Clean workspace" is selected, "git clean -fdx" is run, which is a great way of starting with a pristine build directory. However, if for Maven projects a "Local to the workspace" M2 repository is selected, the clean command will also clean away the repository, which will cause hundreds of artifacts to be re-downloaded. Even though a maven proxy makes this les worse, it would be nice if there was an option to allow exclusions from the clean (git clean -fdx -e <pattern>).
