[PATCH v1 0/1] Spell Check File Mask Leak into Sequential Package Checks

Kun Qin

REF: https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3443

Current spell check routine on CI build pipelines is ignoring some files

The issue is class variable, STANDARD_PLUGIN_DEFINED_PATHS from
SpellCheck.py, is a list. In a local function the list is assigned to a
local variable, which is then modified based on the package config. But
the modification of this local variable will change the class variable
and then leaks to the next package.

The proposed solution in this patch series is to convert class member to
tuple so that is read-only. Then copy into list in the local function
before package specific modifications.
