This has now been fixed, so future conversion runs with reposurgeon should
have the automatically-generated .gitignore present until replaced by the
one checked into SVN. (If people don't want automatically-generated
.gitignore files at all, we could always add an option to reposurgeon not
to generate them.)
I'll do another GCC conversion run to pick up all the accumulated fixes
and improvements (including many more PR whitelist entries / fixes in
Richard's script), once another ChangeLog-related fix is in.
