Dear Ryan

Thanks for this release!

I got a question: Are you planning a task, User Story, that asks the
user first before deleting the doc directory when running

check_manifest

I use rake and hoe for a lot of web-projects and those web-project all
have a doc-directory. So it is not so userfriendly if running

rake check_manifest

deletes my existing doc dir with a ton of files there.

It would be nice if the user would be asked first if check_manifest
should delete the doc dir or not. I would suggest the same applys for
any other directory that is wanting to be wiped by rake check_manifest.

Thank you for your Feedback.

No. Hoe will never ask the user anything.

If you’re using git, you might want to check out the hoe-git plugin,
which can use git ls-files to build the manifest.

If you’re not using git, then I guess this post isn’t very helpful.
Sorry :slight_smile:

Dear Ben

Excellent! Thanks for the Tip! I do use GIT.

Dear Ryan

Thanks for the Tip, I will look into that.

Dear Ryan

Another thing I do not like is that when I do

rake release VERSION=2.0.1 --trace

then again my doc directory gets wiped without asking me. I need that
directory for other stuff of my web-project. My Documentation of the
project is in a completely different directory.

Any hints how do deal with that?

Dear Ryan

This solved my problem:

Hoe.plugins.delete :clean

will skip the unnecessary deleting of my doc folder that contains
something else then the default hoe installation thinks is there.

Thank you for your awesome work on hoe. I like it.
