the attached test case contains the following:

// configure dojo
dojoConfig = {
        async: 1,
        aliases: [
                [/^myDojo/, 'dojo']
        deps: ['myDojo'],
        callback: function (d) {
                console.log('dojo loaded');
                require(['myDojo/domReady!'], function () {
                        console.log('dom ready');

if i change 'myDojo/domReady!' to 'myDojo/domReady' then i'll see the 2nd log.

The alias given above will map all modules that begin with "myDojo" to the single module "dojo" which implies "dojo/main". And dojo/main is not a plugin.

You could get the code to work as you intend by changing the aliases config to look like this:

aliases: [
	["myDojo", "dojo/main"],
	["myDojo/domReady", "dojo/domReady"]

But, I'm not sure I see how this is useful.

The intent of allowing a regex is to help map a set of modules to the same module. For example,

aliases:[[/\/text$/, "dojo/text"]]

would map require/text and someOtherPackage/text to the dojo text module.

Thinking about it (this is the second time the regex has generated a question), the regex form may be more trouble than it's worth.
