[GRADLE-2550] CopySpec eachFile does not visit child specs added with "with" Created: 13/Nov/12  Updated: 26/Mar/14  Resolved: 26/Mar/14

When using "with" to add a child CopySpec to a Copy task, the eachFile visitor does not visit the files in the child spec. Here is a simple example:

task one(type: Copy) {
    from 'src'
    into 'target'

task two(type: Copy) {
    with one
    into 'newtarget'
    eachFile { println("two: $it.name") }

Where the `src` directory has some arbitrary files in it. I would expect to see the output lines beginning with `two`, but instead I get:

$ gradle two

In addition to eachFile, this bug also seems to affect the exclude method. The exclude patterns set on the parent spec (task two in this example) do not propagate to the child spec (task one).

I should also mention that this bug still exists in 1.3.
