I'm not completely sure, but I think the glob patterns match relative to
the location of the .gitignore/.gitattributes files they are specified
in. So in your case "*.sdf" matches only sdf-files directly located in
myProj/ but not in subfolders. To match all sdf-files contained in your
project, "**/*.sdf" should do the trick.
