treewide: rename 'struct exclude_list' to 'struct pattern_list'
The first consumer of pattern-matching filenames was the .gitignore feature. In that context, storing a list of patterns as a 'struct exclude_list' makes sense. However, the sparse-checkout feature then adopted these structures and methods, but with the opposite meaning: these patterns match the files that should be included! It would be clearer to rename this entire library as a "pattern matching" library, and the callers apply exclusion/inclusion logic accordingly based on their needs. This commit renames 'struct exclude_list' to 'struct pattern_list' and renames several variables called 'el' to 'pl'. Signed-off-by: Derrick Stolee <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
