Subject: [boost] [inspect] Tag a directory to be ignored?
From: Beman Dawes (bdawes_at_[hidden])

The Boost inspection tool that generates the inspection reports has a
hardwired list of directories not to recurse into. "CVS", ".svn",
".git", etc. While those particular cases make sense, some of the
hardwired names are so specialized ("doc/xml",
"tools/build/v2/engine", etc.) that a better approach might be to tag
directories as not to be inspected. That way the inspect.cpp code
wouldn't have to be changed to accommodate yet another directory to be

One simple way to do this would be for inspect.cpp to ignore any
directories with some special file. For example, "no_boost_inspect".
