Having previously read the plugin documentation multiple times, far as I could tell in the plugin documentation, using the ant-style selection did not replicate hierarchies, but flattened them. I not only want to read a tree of files in, but want that tree, with sub-directories and all, replicated to the target, as per "scp -r". Does the ant-style selection do this?
Previous comments by: Jul 21, 2009, Dan Morrow and Aug 12, 2010, Andrei Pozolotin have gone unanswered.
The comment in the documentation " You can use ant includes syntax, eg. folder/dist/*.jar. " does not clearly imply that directory hierarchies will be replicated, and the previous comments imply I am correct.
