Subject Re: .gitignore for automake files
Date Fri, 17 Jan 2014 19:05:39 GMT
My concern with adding .gitignore to the repo is that typically I have
additional things I want to ignore that are specific to me (e.g., eclipse
project files). Adding those to the .gitignore would should up in my git
diff and git status if .gitignore is a tracked file.
