Subject Re: .git(modules|attributes|ignore) files in source dists?
Date Wed, 20 Jun 2018 03:43:23 GMT
I don't have a preference on whether or not to include the SCM related 
files, but at least in the recent IvyDE release process, I setup the 
build to use "git archive" command to generate these source tar/zip 
packages[1]. The documentation of git archive doesn't explicitly state 
anything about files like .gitignore being packaged into the archive. So 
I looked into the generated source tar and those are indeed present.

I actually can't think of a reason why we should exclude these files.
