Clarify meaning of "literal pattern matching" for Excluded Users config

      git plugin 4.5.0

      Description

      In git-plugin, the documentation for the "Excluded Users" field says:

      Each exclusion uses literal pattern matching, and must be separated by a new line.

      It is not clear what "literal pattern matching" means. For example, if I want to match a user called "renovate[bot]", it is difficult to determine what value I should put in the field. It is not clear if wildcards of any kind can be used.

      The documentation:

      should be updated to clarify.
