task mySync(type: Sync) {
from AAA
into "BBB"
syncExclude ".svn"
This would sync everything from AAA to BBB without deleting the ".svn" subfolder.

from AAA
into "BBB"
syncInclude "*.jar"
This would only sync the JAR files from AAA to BBB without deleting other files or folders.

As announced on the Gradle blog we are planning to completely migrate issues from JIRA to GitHub.

We intend to prioritize issues that are actionable and impactful while working more closely with the community. Many of our JIRA issues are inactionable or irrelevant. We would like to request your help to ensure we can appropriately prioritize JIRA issues you’ve contributed to.

Please confirm that you still advocate for your JIRA issue before December 10th, 2016 by:

  • Checking that your issues contain requisite context, impact, behaviors, and examples as described in our published guidelines.
  • Leave a comment on the JIRA issue or open a new GitHub issue confirming that the above is complete.

We look forward to collaborating with you more closely on GitHub. Thank you for your contribution to Gradle!

I know so far no solution to the problem.

You can do the following:

task mySync(type: Sync) {
    from "a"
    into "b"
    include "*.jar"
    preserve {
        include "**/*"

See https://docs.gradle.org/current/javadoc/org/gradle/api/tasks/Sync.html#preserve(org.gradle.api.Action) for more info.
