Hmmm. This is all for building with srcdir == builddir isn't it?
I really don't like that. IMHO we should advise people to always build
with srcdir != buildir. But apparently I am in the minority. Mike
Frysinger (added to CC) also keeps trying to push something similar
every couple of months. Last here:
Are you really sure this is a good idea?
i have no problem with encouraging people to build out of tree (i love that
functionality). sometimes though, it's easier to just build in tree to do
quick tests. i also don't think it's a big deal to support, or to just take
patches tweaking the gitignore file even if people themselves don't want to
If so could you double check that your lists are equal?
if you want to merge Florian's version, i'd be happy to rebase
might be easier to keep these lists in src/.gitignore or tests/.gitignore.
i'm fine with either.
