Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
See attached patch.
Thanks for your report.
The default configuration already includes /var/cache/ccache and /var/spool/squid in PRUNEPATHS in /etc/updatedb.conf. Is this not working or not sufficient?
Oops! I didn't realize there were exclusions in /etc/updatedb.conf. I was just looking at the cron job.
Sorry to bother you.
