Developers run all sorts of different tools within Git repositories,
any of which can leave their own special trashfiles all over the
place. We can't every hope to catalog them all, so better to
recommend developers simply configure a global core.excludesfile to
filter the irrelevant files which tend to get created by their
personal choice of tools.
To this end, remove the long-standing sections for "Mr Developer"
and "Editors" since their mere existence here sends the signal that
we welcome (and have time to review) additions for any old tool
someone ever might happen to try. Also add a comment block
explaining this, for clarity.
We can, and should of course, continue to list files created by the
tools recommended by our workflow (test frameworks called from tox,
documentation and packaging builds, et cetera).
This change is a port of I1b41efac219fca44e2548fc36633724d0ecfc0cb
from the openstack-dev/oslo-cookiecutter repository.
According to Openstack summit session ,
stestr is maintained project to which all Openstack projects should migrate.
Let's switch to stestr as other projects have already moved to it.
This directory contains eggs that were downloaded by setuptools
to build, test, and run plug-ins.
This directory caches those eggs to prevent repeated downloads.
We need to ignore it.
