I noticed that the dump plugin does not stage files in hidden directories by default. Is there a way to change this behavior of the dump plugin or is the only way to do so to add a stage directives that explicitly add the hidden directory so it is staged and ultimately included in the published snap?
I looked into this and I think I see what is going on, not really a dump plugin issue exactly, but right here it looks like the default stage fileset value is “*”
So I think mysolution is to add
same as the recommendation in the bug mentioned in comment above. Thanks for the pointer.
Indeed. This is an issue with most file migration tasks in Snapcraft, including organize, because Python’s globs ignore hidden files.
