The default ignore list of filecmp.dircmp is ['RCS', 'CVS', 'tags'].

This predates even Subversion! I suggest to freshen up this module to also ignore the dirs for SVN, Mercurial, Git and Bazaar.

[this is a new feature, so no earlier than 3.4...]

Hi moijes12, for instructions on compiling and submitting patches, etc., see the Python Developer's Guide (aka the devguide).  You may also be interested in the Python Mentors Group:

Lastly (a small point), in the future you can also type comments about your patch in the "Comment" text field in addition to the "File Description" text field.  You can do this in the same "Submit Changes" operation that you use to choose and upload your file.

moijes12, thanks for the patch.  Since this is a new feature we'll need to wait until the 3.3 RC1 repo is branched before applying it.

moijes12, why are the added names "raw" ?
msg172920 - (view) Author: Éric Araujo (eric.araujo) * (Python committer) Date: 2012-10-14 20:49
ISTM the names should be regular names, not regular expression patterns.
msg172964 - (view) Author: Eli Bendersky (eli.bendersky) * (Python committer) Date: 2012-10-15 12:29
I tend to agree with Éric here.

moijes12, would you like to send an updated patch without the raw literals, and with added tests for the new/changed functionality?

Yeah. I'm on it.

Should __pycache__ be ignored too?

Sounds good.

See the devguide

Attaching an alternative patch, that goes one (little) step further. Instead of repeating the ignored list all over the place (code, docstrings, ReST docs), the module exposes DEFAULT_IGNORES so everything can refer to it.

Also added some tests for this feature.

The patch is only vs. default (3.4), of course.
