A test file 'test.tst' is successfully picked up by the disk tidy plugin with 'test.ts*: yes' in the config, but not with '*.tst: yes', for example. It seems that the '*' wildcard will only work at the end.

Unrelated additional question: If I'm filing bugs on a manually installed Rockbox current build, should I file it as 'Daily build', or 'Rbutil SVN'? It doesn't seem to me to be either.

Thanks, and congratulations on the rapid RaaA progress!

Reason for closing:  Not a Bug
Additional comments about closing:  Feature requests belong in the "feature ideas" forum. Btw the "Rbutil SVN" category is for bugs *in* rbutil.

In this [1] post funman asserts that this is in fact by design.

I still think recognising '*'s anywhere would be a worthwhile addition, however, so consider this a feature request...
