Default excludes of copy task

In Ant, there are a bunch of default exclusion patterns defined for directory-based tasks, see Section Default Excludes here:

Does the Gradle copy task (and its sub tasks) specify the same default excludes? If this is the case, it should be documented somewhere here If this is not the case, consider this posting a feature request to add the same default exclusion patterns that Ant defines.

Please see the corresponding issue and pull request that explains it in the documentation.
