I am testing the update process which is pretty straight-forward as mentioned here. So we basically git pull from Galaxy GitHub repo (from master branch), take a look at the new sample files just pulled and edit the corresponding config files if needed.

The .gitignore file in the Galaxy GitHub repo is there to preserve our local config files, so the only tracked files are supposed to be the samples.. However, I noticed this line in the provided .gitignore




This means that all the files within the config directory are ignored, including the *.sample files that should be tracked...

This does not make sens to me, could anyone tell me what I could be missing?

Gitignore only affects files newly created after the gitignore existed. the *.sample files in config folder are already versioned thus updates to them will be tracked and propagated.
