Further strange VLT behaviour


Level 2

When executing the following VLT command

vlt --credentials XX:XX export -v http://localhost:4502/crx / ./src/main/content

Using the following filter.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<workspaceFilter version="1.0">

  <filter root="/tmp">

    <include pattern=".*\.gif"/>



I  expected only nodes that end with .gif would get exported. As per the official Jackrabbit Filevault documentation here: Jackrabbit Filevault - Workspace Filter

It states:

Here's where the filter file is located:

I wonder if this is related to this other unexpected behaviour I reported....

When exporting using VLT the behaviour changes for a specific workspace filter when adding another f...
