I’ve been wondering why the current
.gitignore file for math does not include
*-test. Without it
git status is unusable, as all generated
*-test files are marked as uncommitted. I have added it to my copy, but it’s always a bit of a pain whenever I rebase branches, as that forces me to stash that change.
What do other people do about this? If I post a PR about it, will it be accepted?
Sure! Just create an issue (looks like some of your text can be used for it) and then submit a PR to do it.
I don’t know of a good reason why it wouldn’t include
*-test. If there are other things that you want to clean up on the Math library, please feel free to! It’s a big project and paying down technical debt is really appreciated.
I was mainly checking that I didn’t miss anything obvious before filing a trivial issue. Thanks for your answer, I’ve now created an issue about it.
I had assumed they were in .gitignore because I don’t see the test files in math when I execute
What happened is that I somehow created those files when I started developing stuff, and I never removed them, assuming they were constantly being regenerated. I’ve then cleaned them up and now I can’t reproduce what I did, so the current
.gitignore file already contains all necessary rules, and my workaround above is not actually needed.
