[openstack-dev] [bashate] .bashateignore

Integrating bashate into something as complicated as devstack, the file
ignore problem has come up.

We seem to have 3 approaches out under review right now:

https://review.openstack.org/#/c/117425 : --exclude-dirs
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/115794 : --exclude-dirs (different
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/113892 : removing hidden directories

I'm actually kind of convinced now that none of these approaches are
what we need, and that we should instead have a .bashateignore file in
the root dir for the project instead, which would be regex that would
match files or directories to throw out of the walk.

I think that would handle the concerns that everyone is having, and
hopefully provides a more clear set of semantics in integrating.

Anyone up for taking a stab at this patch?
