I have some custom php-shell skripts in mySite directory. Unfortunately Silverstripe executes them when running /dev/build and fails with a Fatal. How can I tell Silverstripe to skip some files during build?

Put a empty file named "_manifest_exclude" together with your shell scripts in a seperated folder.

Thanks, that works great.
Another solution is to prefix the file(s) with an underscore '_' . But excluding a whole directory fits better for me.
