True. The .cvsignore files were bogus anyway and needed cleaning up. A .gitignore at the repository root would have covered many cases, but at least in p2 there were a half dozen projects with other things in the ignore file, like "lib", "bin_ant", etc. Managing this at the project level seemed the most reliable way to get that kind of control.

AFAIK it reads them from bottom to top, so you can still have your main gitignore in the repo root (really, a best practice) and provide the few extra ignores in the projects for which it matters.

As an aside, you could also list them all in the repo root (you can specify a full path from there). The disadvantage is you are managing them in one location, the advantage is you won't have to bump bundle qualifiers related to gitignore.
