It seems the documentation is slightly wrong with respect to this, as both the include and the exclude pattern is used for each path, and if matched by both, the item is included.

The simplest way to make a blacklist is by only using the include key and prefix it with ! (to negate), e.g.:

    include = "!.git"


    include = "!{.git,.svn,.hg}"
