I'm not a commit-access-control.pl user, let alone an expert, but for
regular expressions in general (as opposed to command line globbing)
an '*' on its own doesn't mean anything. Your match in regexp speak
should be something like:


The first '.' means any character. The '*' modifies this to mean any
number of any character (possible even zero). Then the second '.' is
escaped with a '\'. Finally the dd extension.

Possible '.+\.dd' might be better + = one or more.
