Subject: GatherDir uses exclude_filename as a regex, causing files to be excluded incorrectly
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 336b
For example, try excluding MANIFEST while including MANIFEST.SKIP. Because the match is done as an unanchored regex, the latter will be incorrectly excluded. If exclude_filename is really going to be a regex, then what's the point of match? To match the behaviour described in the docs, the match must be against the whole filename.
