(Imported from Trac #862, reported by guest on 2011-07-13)
For the Yesod scaffolding tool We have a directory structure of extra files. The current file glob syntax doesn't recurse into directories or recognize files with multiple suffixes. So I am left to manually do a find command and list all the files in the cabal file. The extra-source-files field needs a real shell glob syntax. This does not seem like a hard change to make, but some guidance is needed for the approach. I see there is a glob package.
Duplicate of #784. There are also two open pull requests regarding this issue.
