Ability to mark local file/directory to be ignored
I generate directories with soft links to files so local users can download all data files, pictures, or movies without having to find them buried in the trials. I would like to be able to mark these directories to be ignored by Pen, so that checksums and uploads, especially, do not happen with the soft links in these folders, but I can still choose to perform an action on an entire Experiment.
Another possible implementation would be to ignore soft links/aliases, though this isn't as general or as clean.
