Quick question, do you plan on allowing to an additional properties when creating a deployment in Prefect 2 that would target a directory for the upload. Currently this seems quite limiting to only have the possibility to upload the current folder and ignore files based on the .prefectignore file. I see a dirty workaround of people actually uploading the whole directory on the first deployment creation, and then ignoring uploading for following deployments command. Ideally I would like to have the option to target specific files/folder for the upload.
Also .prefectignore does not seem to support "*" wildcards

Hey @Jean-Michel Provencher!! At the moment, there is no flag to specify exact files to upload to remote storage. There is the
--skip-upload
flag which will skip uploading all of the files to remote storage. You can submit a feature request for specifying files here: https://github.com/PrefectHQ/prefect/issues/new/choose The prefect ignore file has the same syntax as a gitignore file, which should support wildcards: https://git-scm.com/docs/gitignore
