...more specifically, the shell (command line interpreter) first
expands ("globs") the patterns, and darcs thus only sees the list of
expanded .htm files in the current directory.  Since you didn't
specify any directories to recurse into, darcs doesn't.

Why don't you just add jpegs or whatever to the boring file, if you
don't want them version-controlled?

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
