Can I have some documentation examples excluded from Abrt crash collection?

Hi Jeff,

Good idea, also the opencv package would use this feature for its Python 
programming examples. Current ABRT cannot ignore crashes based on paths, 
so it must be developed.

Please file a RFE in Bugzilla, and include the filename mask(s) marking 
the files you want to exclude. I think it will be something like:

IMHO for the beginning it is right to have even package-specific 
configuration (like the excluded paths) in ABRT. Later this kind of 
configuration should move to the packages, as ABRT configuration files 
and feature set become more mature and stable.
