"git status" suddenly started to show that directory as "??"

reflected in .gitignore.

Yes, but I see now that you only removed .deps from .gitignore 2 days
ago, which would explain why I suddenly started seeing it.  May I
suggest that in the future you accompany that by posting here an
advice to make sure the directory is removed?
