I mostly expect this to be "won't fixed", but it would be very useful for unofficial git mirrors if Django had at least a basic .gitignore file that excluded .py[c|o] files.

If there are ignore files for unofficial mirrors to be provided by Django, it would make sense to provide it for all SCM types that could be used for mirrors. Or at the bare minimum the three "big" ones: Git, Bazaar and Mercurial.

by the way, I just checked and I note that in my local Django copy, the svn ignores are incomplete on the 1.0.X release branch:

$ svn st

Being the maintainer of the Git mirror I don't see a need for this change since all DVCS allow global ignore files, e.g. git config --global core.excludesfile ~/.gitignore.

I think this would be nice in order to reduce the burden for new developers. Not many people know how to create a system-level .gitignore file. Anyway, with a big project there will be special excludes that are specific to the project. This could also just be done on the other repository and not on the official one.

As for other repos, I don't think there is a Mercurial or Bazaar mirror so those could be safely ignored until a repo exists.

Closing this as wontfix since this isn't a Django issue.
