#114 Work better with git/gitignore
Opened 9 years ago by dledford. Modified 2 years ago

When adding a new source file to a repo, rpkg updates .gitignore to ignore the tarball name. It would be nice if it also added an entry to ignore the tarball's top level directory so that a make prep does not cause a huge number of untracked files to show up in git status or git gui.

This is similar to #355, but .gitignore is the right place to ignore the directory name.

The top level directory should be directory extracted from tarball. For example, tar xvf ed-1.14.2.tar.xz will generate directory ed-1.14.2.
