Double-star in ignore glob patterns does not work #530
It would be nice if this got fixed. I was quite disappointed to discover that even though the readme says
Reading @decaff's published fix this doesn't seem too hard to implement.
@ggreer would you consider a PR for this?
This is making ag basically unusable for me, I use double-stars heavily in my .gitignore files. It seems to be a regression since (at least) version 0.31, as I discovered when upgrading to ubuntu 18.04 from 16.04. And as @fabiospampinato mentioned, it's misleading and frustrating to find that the readme is incorrect.
