I've created a patch that adds the ability to exclude particular Bundles from an AIP during the AIP export process.
As of DSpace 1.7.x, we only support specifying which bundles to include. See the 'includeBundles' option documented here:
This minor patch adds the ability to specify a new 'filterBundles' option, which can be utilized to either specify an inclusion list or an exclusion list.
For example, specifying:
Will exclude the TEXT and THUMBNAIL bundles from all exported AIPs
Will instead only include the ORIGINAL and LICENSE bundles (notice the "+" specifies inclusion).
This new improvement to the DSpaceAIPDisseminator also allows it to better share its settings with the current Replication Suite,
DS-876 (which uses a similar inclusion/exclusion bundle filter setting). This change is also backwards compatible. Institutions can continue to use the 'includeBundles' setting if they wish. This new 'filterBundles' setting just provides an additional option.
