[Dirvish] How to backup only some specific directories and files with dirvish?

Hi community,
I do not understand how the exclude-/include-patterns work - in spite of
heavy man-page- und WWW-reading :-( I am trying to backup only some
files with dirvish but I get not the result that I want.
Find more details below - You are my last hope ;-)
Best regards and a happy new year 2015,
Christian


My directory structure which contains some of the files to backup is as
follows:
/
  /bin (...)
  /etc (...)
  /root (...)
  /usr (...)
    /local (...)
  /var (...)
  /volume1(...)
      /@optware (...)
      /@appstore (...)
      /web (...)
  /volume2 (...)
  ...

I only want to backup the following files which I put with a "+" into
the exclude-option of the bank's default.conf:
- all Files and directories in /usr/local, /volume1/optware, etc.
- all Files and directories in /root
- 4 Files which lay in /etc
- all files in /etc/ssh

=====default.conf=====================
client: my-workstation
tree:   /
xdev: 1

exclude:
  + */
  + /usr/local/
  + /volume1/optware/
  + /volume1/@appstore/
  + /volume1/web/
  + /volume1/readme-krischi
  + /root/
  + /etc/profile
  + /etc/rc.local
  + /etc/rsyncd.conf
  + /etc/rsyncd.secrets
  + /etc/ssh/
  - *
=========================

And in my master.conf there is an exclude-option, too:
======exclude-option in master.conf=========
exclude:
  lost+found/
  temp
  .btsync/
  .sync/
=======================================

As result of a "dirvish --vault ds213j --init" only the following 4
files are backuped:

ACTION: rsync -vrltH --delete -c -x --stats -pgo --numeric-ids -D
--exclude-from=/volume2/ds213j/ds213j/20150107_2237/exclude /
/volume2/ds213j/ds213j/20150107_2237/tree

sending incremental file list
etc/profile
etc/rc.local
etc/rsyncd.conf
etc/rsyncd.secrets
