A cheatsheet for the pattern to use to match certain paths for a GitHub CODEOWNERS file.

The cheatsheet uses <ROOT>/.buildkite as an example. <ROOT> in the "I want to match" section is the git root of your project.

I want to match...Pattern
all files in <ROOT>/.buildkite.buildkite/**
.buildkite directory anywhere in the project**/.buildkite
everything but <ROOT>/.buildkite!.buildkite
.buildkite anywhere in testtest/**/.buildkite
