Some people want to watch the world burn.

Me, i want to add the line ".gitignore" to .gitignore, force push it and fuck off to holidays with a phone turned off.

    P.S. I don't know if this would actually work the way I think it would, but it sounds promising.

    This wouldn't do anything. Git has already tracked .gitignore unless it's a brand new repository.

    Further, if you're commiting without checking what you're committing first (git status) then you're going to piss off a lot of actually-responsible developers at some point.

    What exactly did you think would happen?

    @junon even in a new repository it won't do anything either is committed and therefore present and tracked or its not present. Chicken and egg problem.
    It might have an effect on .gitignore files in subdirectories of they haven't been committed yet.

    Simply deleting .gitignore and commit will do the trick.

    Has anyone tried adding "!*"?
