Using version 0.2.9 I was unable to get specufied files from a directory using sftp. I could get all the files in the directory using a *.* selector.
Sftp task used:-
<sftp action="get" remotedir="test" verbose="true">
I have attached a patch the change I made to the source to solve the problem.
This patch did not work with subdirectories in the included name (e.g. <include name="subdir/Test*.*"/>)
