Environment:Windows server 2008, maven 3.0.2
Number of attachments :
I did a minimal test to reproduce and describe the issue:
I have a directory containing .* resources (for example ".svn") let's say C:\tmp\svn_checkout
I create a project with a minimal pom.xml :
In the project I create a "target" directory
In the target directory I do "mklink /J svn_checkout C:\tmp\svn_checkout"
So I have
If I do "mvn clean" the target directory is deleted as expected, but also all my .svn directories under C:\tmp\svn_checkout
If I have other .* files (.project, .classpath) they are deleted too.
In the real life I have a custom maven plugin that creates an ear on my app server, and replaces the war files in it by junction to the war project I checkout from svn.
I add the ear in the list of directories to be "cleaned" (by adding a <fileset>), and I have all my .svn deleted on each clean.
