# Wildcard paths and path printing.

Reported by: Owned by: anonymous Alec Thomas normal ChangeLogPlugin normal trachacks@… 0.9

### Description

Would it be possible to add wildcard paths?, perhaps even RE? (though RE is not needed.)

Eg, instead of having many instances of

Changelog(<path>/somedir)


It would be nice to be able to simply put

ChangeLog(.*/somedir)


And have ChangeLog print something similar to:

[XXX] by XXX on 2006-09-09 13:30:28
<insert path here>
<log>


Ordered chronologically. I've got a situation where it would be handy to track check-ins into multiple subdirs in a repository.

Dammit, typo'd the email address I setup, sorry.

This would make the plugin much more complex I think. If you did it, you'd ideally want the revisions to be merged, ordered correctly:

[XXX] by XXX on 2006-09-09 13:30:28
<path1> <path2> <path3> ...
<log>



Also, matching paths might appear and disappear between changesets.

For the sake of keeping things simple and elegant, I'll say no for now, but if somebody wants to send me a nice clean patch I'm more than happy to consider it.
