It seems that when you do a "vmc push", not all files will get pushed up to cloudfoundry (they are note found when I do "vmc files myapp app"). Currently, it looks like .git, .svn, *~, #foo log/development.log are filtered. But some files that you might want to prevent being uploaded do get uploaded (e.g., I tried log/development.log-orig, which got uploaded).

I think there should be a mechanism for the developer to specify a set of files to ignore during upload, and there should be some clear documentation as to which files are already filtered. I should be able to prevent entire directories "log", allow a directory, but not contents "log/*/" and filetypes *.sqlite3.

+1, this feature would be nice to have. In my opinion, the way that files are being ignored right now might not be very intuitive for some. For example, currently .htaccess files at root are being ignored after a vmc push.

I inquired about this feature on support forum.

The reply from cloud foundry team is folloing.

I reviewed this with engineering, and it is active and in the works. :-)
