Follow-up Comment #2, patch #5051 (project grep):

Now --exclude-dir has been added, bug #11017 should probably be closed as
"Wontdo".  And the resolution on patch #3521 could be changed to "Done", with
maybe a short 'half of it' comment.

The man and info page text of --exclude-dir should be changed to follow that
of --include, to make clear that DIR isn't a regular expression but a
wildcard pattern.  So instead of "Exclude directories matching the pattern
DIR from recursive searches", something like: "Exclude from recursive
searches the directories whose base name matches DIR (using wildcard matching
as described under  --exclude)".

The period at the end of --help description of --exclude-dir should be
removed (grep.c line 1475), to match the other lines.
