    I'm trying to include a `.dist` folder in my app.  AppBuilder seems to exclude any folder that starts with a period.  Is there a way to include this folder by creating an `include` rule in `.abignore`?

    The documentation here says include rules start with an exclamation point.  http://docs.telerik.com/platform/appbuilder/testing-your-app/abignore

     So I tried this to no avail:

    `!.dist/**/*`

    Hello Michael,

    As long as you have files in the .dist folder, it will be packaged and sent to our server. However, at the moment our build service doesn't build the content of any folder staring with a period. I am afraid that the .abproject file cannot help working around this issue. As I am not aware of a solution at the moment, I will log the case in our internal issue tracker so that our development team can have a closer look at it.

    It would help if you can describe your use case in more details so I can pass this feedback along as well. Thank you in advance for the additional information.

    Thanks Tina.

     I don't have much more to add except to say that our internal convention is to use folder names that start with a period in some cases.

    Hello Michael,

    I can now confirm this is a bug in the iOS and Android builds. It is logged and we will try to address it for one of our upcoming releases. However, I cannot yet commit to a specific time frame.

    In the meantime, please accept my apology for the inconvenience caused and don't hesitate to let me know if this is a show stopper for you.
