Jazzignore : possible to ignore files that only have properties modified (access rights for example) ?

Using RTC 5.0.2 Linux client, when I modify a file property (like access rights, with chmod command for example), the file appears in the Pending Changes view as modified.

Is it possible to ignore this kind of modifications (with a jazzignore file for example) ?

I don't think it is possible because it seems that jazzignore files are really simple. But perhaps I missed something.

Thanks for your help,

According to the documentation about .jazzignore:
A .jazzignore file consists of a series of patterns. Any file, folder, or symbolic link whose name matches a pattern cannot be committed to a change set -

which confirms your suspicion that .jazzignore files are simple lists of patterns for matching file and directory names.

Ok thank you Alan.
So bad that we can't do more complex filters on what is displayed in Pending Changes.
