Reasons for www/lib folder not being under .gitignore?


I always put the www/lib folder under .gitignore. Is there a reason why it is not by default in .gitignore file? Or am I doing something wrong here?


if you are using external dependencies and include the js-libs directly, so you need them in your repository to get everything working


But wouldn’t it be best practice to ignore the bower components from source control, then simply run bower install as a part of your build script?
