Ignoring the right way [Git]

Do you commit your .gitignore files? (Do you even use a .gitignore file? (Do you even use git? (Do you even write code?))) IMO, the best practice is to add a set of commonly ignored files to .gitignore and commit it. Saves time for everyone. If anyone using the repo needs his private list of ignores, he can use the .git/info/exclude file, which won’t affect even those who fetch straight from your local repository.
