Re: [RFC] Add a .gitattributes file for use with git-merge-changelog


Hi Samuel,

This seems like a good idea to me.

When in doubt, look for precedence.

grep will show changes to other .git* files were listed in ChangeLog:

 $ grep "\.git" ChangeLog* gdb/ChangeLog*
 ChangeLog:      * .gitignore: Import from gdb repository.
 ChangeLog:      * .gitignore: New file.
 gdb/ChangeLog-2011:     * .gitignore: New file.
 gdb/ChangeLog-2012:     * .gitignore: Add go-exp.c.
 gdb/ChangeLog-2012:     * .gitignore: Ignore more files.
 gdb/ChangeLog-2012:     * .gitignore (/gdbtui): Remove.
 gdb/ChangeLog-2013:     * .gitignore: Add /gcore.

Likewise 'git log .gitignore gdb/.gitignore'.
