2010-09-01 11:10:45     .gitignore

Message: 93031   

 

After having done make, the distribution shows some untracked files, mainly from /user. The kernel behaves better in this respect, probably also due to the effort taken to create subdirectory individual .gitignore files.

 

I'd prefer to have the "global" gitignore exclude patterns like /user/* followed by /user/*.*, but I'm not sure if this is a good idea. Including file mode in the patterns is not supported as far as I can see (exclude x-flag...).

 

Any hint which can be given?

 

Anyway, I have set build-* as a pattern to ignore common build directories whereever they exist.

 

An extract of git status:

uclinux-dist is maintained in svn, so there is no automatic svn:ignore->.gitignore translation going on

 

the top level .gitignore is just something i threw together one time

Mike, I saw that you pushed an update to .gitignore.

 

In parallel, I have improvements, too - escpecially regarding ignores in user/ and tools/, see patch. Seems to operate in the desired way - filters out most of generated binaries and *.so.n.
