Description of problem: Drift does not detect empty directories
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create empty directory in folder being watched by drift
drift does not detect it
Not exactly clear what the expected behavior is...
some discussion around what is expected:
<mazz> jshaughn: mfoley: it is a design decision that folders are not tracked
<jshaughn> far-flung use case
<mazz> only content, bits, files
<mazz> kinda like how git works
<mazz> so empty directories coming and going are not tracked for drift
<mfoley> ok ...
<jshaughn> so use empty files if you want markers
<jshaughn> and you want to track using this stuff
<ccrouch> jshaughn: thats not our call
<jshaughn> I don't see how that is drift
<pilhuhn> someone laying down an exploded war file with no content for the start
<jshaughn> ccrouch: what we're saying is if you want that it will require redesign
<ccrouch> mfoley: i think its a perfectly reasonable question to ask, log it as low priority bug and include this conversation, so when others have the same question they can see the discussion
Just an update: There has been no support added for this use case. So, it
remains as described above, the coming and going of empty directories are
not tracked as drift.
