Subject: Add .gitignore to MANIFEST.SKIP
Git repositories often have a .gitignore file. There's no real harm in shipping it, but it would be nice if it wasn't. (One could use .git/info/exclude instead, but MANIFEST.SKIP isn't the file to dictate practices)
Thanks very much for the suggestion - I've added this to the svn sources, and will release a new CPAN version shortly.
