Thanks for looking at this. My summary was inaccurate. If _upstream_ have a gitignore then it does indeed end up in the package. But if the gitignore is created or changed by the maintainer, the default -I omits it, I think. I haven't tried this with gbp yet. (I'm currently wrestling with some dgit misbehaviour with 3.0 single-debian-patch.) If I'm wrong then excellent.
