ArmA 2 BinPBO Exclude List
This file contains excludes for directory and file names of which binpbo do not add to the pbo. It is important that you add any specific project work directories and files here, for example as simple as *.txt is good to add here.
Why? Not to have unused files packed into your pbo which you release to the public. To avoid excessive space taken in the pbo, to not perhaps show public your private editing techniques or notes, etc.
