I have one question : what goes in those ignore filesĀ ? I've heard some
people want to ignore files created during compilation, while some other
don't because they compile off tree and want to know if files get added
in the tree.

Related to this, is the fact that bzr ignores some files automatically:
$ bzr ignore  --default-rules

while git does not AFAIK (except those files/directories named '.git'.)

Should the .bzr->.git transition automatically add these to the
.gitignore file ?
