I made a typo, but you probably understood:
s/spurious test/spurious text/
Thanks for the suggestion, bzr ls -u was new to me. However the
behaviour of "bzr ls" is broken/confused in version 2.4.2. One would
expect similar behaviour between "bzr ignored", "bzr ls --ignored" and
"bzr --unknown" but:
$ basename `pwd`
$ bzr ignored # expect "trunk/distr"
$ bzr ls --ignored # expect "distr/"
$ bzr ls --unknown # expect no output
("bzr ignored" is showing correct behaviour).
Now if there were similar options/commands to also support all the other
states reported by "bzr status" it really would be great! Are there?
removed <-- probably not a option "bzr ls" can itself support.
unknown <-- this one buggily supported now
ignored <-- this one buggily supported now
