Ah, strike what I said about your new section on ".gitignore"; this
is already the right place to describe it.

With or without 'made', I think the header says the same thing, but
I guess it does not hurt to be explicit.

By the way, if you still want to pursue "full-stop at the end of the
sentence MUST be followed by no more than one SP", I won't stop you,
but please do so in a separate patch that has NO OTHER CHANGES.
They drown other changes out that are not mechanical and makes them
hard to review.
