I want to include the .gitignore file in my Maven project when it is getting packaged. (My university wants the file so they can see that I used it the right way)
But the .gitignore is on the workspace directory.
I know that I can add files from directorys below with this in my src.xml
<fileSet> <directory>src/test/resources</directory> <includes> <include>checkstyle_swt1.xml</include> </includes> </fileSet>
But as the .gitignore isnt below src/ I dont know how to include it.
So far I have tried following:
<fileSet> <directory>C:/Users/Samue/OneDrive/SWTest</directory> <includes> <include>.gitignore</include> </includes> </fileSet>
This didnt work unfortnuately. Any other ideas?
Simply use ../../ and you also need to set default exludes to false
