at my wits end with delete

Ok - thanks for the help!!  I made the changes that everyone suggested
and now it does not delete anything at all (which is better in a way)

changed my exclude to excludes (but it's a space separated list which is
read from a properties file) - this is what it looks like in the
properties file

directories=OS-4000-1.6(B18)Beta/**\ OTS-SC-1.6(B18)Beta/**\
OTS-4010-1.6(B17)Beta/**\ OTS-4040-1.6(B17)Beta/**\
OTS-4400-1.6(B17)Beta
/**\ OTS-4540-1.6(B17)Beta/**\ OTS-4520-1.6(B17)Beta/**\
OTS-Common-1.6(B18)Beta/**\ OTS-4011-1.6(B17)Beta/**

Here's the new output from the run

fileset: Setup scanner in dir /opt/stratalight/packages with patternSet{
includes: [*/**] excludes: [OS-4000-1.6(B18)Beta/**,
OTS-SC-1.6(B18)Beta/**, OTS-4010-1.6(B17)Beta/**,
OTS-4040-1.6(B17)Beta/**, OTS-4400-1.6(B17)Beta/**,
OTS-4540-1.6(B17)Beta/**, OTS-4520-1.6(B17)Beta/**,
OTS-Common-1.6(B18)Beta/**, OTS-4011-1.6(B17)Beta/**] }


here's the new code snippet

<delete includeemptydirs="true" >
 <fileset dir="${installation.dir}" excludes="${directories}">
   <include name="*/**"/>
 </fileset>
</delete>


I also tried changing the space separated to comma separated and still
no luck :-(

The excludes should be comma seperated. It's difficult to tell from your
post whether or not that is the case. Please send the part of your
build.xml that defines the excludes.
