sorry for jumping in here, I only know half what those files are about, 
so I might be wrong. It seemed to me those are java files, that are test 
files. If you make an IDE for a language, you will want tests, that 
basically consist of code and are test data. And since they are test 
data, they have been excluded. Since they are also code, this produces 
an edge case conflict.

Now in Groovy we have also test data as code, but our tests have the 
test data either embedded and sue them directly from in-memory or will 
write them to disk or even produce them. Those tests then of course have 
the right header and do not need to be excluded. Is that no way forward 
for NetBeans?
