For my mecurial ignore file I want to select all the folders that start with dataset in my project folder with with one 'glob statement'.

Example project folder:

my_project_folder/
   dataset1/
   dataset2/
   dataset3/
   code.py

I tried dataset*/ but that selects nothing. What would be the right statement?
