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.
With the upgrade to oslotest 3.6.0 , testr no longer works .
This is because oslotest no longer requires testr and we don't depend
on it directly in oslo.service. Let's switch to using stestr, too!
Everyone's doing it...
This patch follows  in oslo.policy
A number of configuration errors prevent the successful creation of code
coverage. This corrects the .coveragerc source/omit setup and the tox
package name generation.
