I understand that you will avoid merging patches that touch these files,
this .gitignore also helps when developing. You can make changes, build
and test, and then `git add -A .` will not include those generated
files. I was particularly bitten by that fancy template.
It's a standardize message that those files are built, not to be
It's your call to make. :)
I removed the gitignore file in this commit:
I think it's better to catch these mistakes on the mailing list / in
pull requests -- which is a good opportunity to teach people about
If you want to be able to do `git add .', keep the file. Just include
the ignore file itself so it doesn't get checked in, like so:
I'll admit fancy/templates.go could probably be renamed to make it more
clear you're not meant to check it in.
