Including by explicitly excluding files in Bacula


Bacula's config file format allows the following
FileSet {
	Name = Blah 
	Exclude {
		Options {
			wilddir = /var/tmp*
		}
	}
	File = /var
}
The Directory /var/tmp from the Exclude section is included in the backup, because to exclude it, the proper config would be
FileSet {
	Name = Blah 
	Exclude {
		Options {
			wilddir = /var/tmp*
		}
		exclude = yes
	}
	File = /var
}
