i was hoping * to work for "anydir", but apparently it doesnt.

rdiff is still searching my 2 firefox profiles and adding files.

Let's see the whole command line.

For an exclusion to be effective, it needs to come (in the argument
list) _before_ any directive that would cause that file or directory
to be included.

rdiff-backup -v5 --print-statistics --exclude-filelist rdiff-excludes /home/julius/ $host::${backup_folder}

- /home/julius/.cache
- /home/julius/.local
- /home/julius/tmp
- /home/julius/Downloads
- /home/julius/.mozilla/firefox/*/extensions/

my thinking was, include everything and exclude some parts like i would do with rsync.
