[openstack-dev] [OpenStack-Dev] IDE extensions in .gitignore

OpenStack does not have operational or administrative ownership over the computers used by contributors. As such, the community should not accept or promote any policy which suggests a configuration that alters the behavior of systems beyond the scope of a local workspace used while working with OpenStack project(s). Official alterations of a *global* .gitignore are completely unacceptable, but if certain files are not to be specified in the .gitignore committed with the project then a policy related to modifying the $GIT_DIR/info/exclude would be an acceptable alternative.

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to see where we stand on IDE extensions in .gitignore files.
We seem to have some back and forth, one cycle there's a bug and a patch to add things like eclipse, idea etc and the next there's a bug and a patch to remove them.  I'd like to have some sort of consensus on what we want here.  I personally don't have a preference, I would just like to have consistency and quit thrashing back and forth.

Anyway, I'd like to see all of the projects agree on this... or even consider moving to a global .gitignore.  Thoughts??
