The fix is to use GitRepo.set_gitattributes()

	## 0.11.1 (Nov 25, 2018) -- v7-better-than-v6

	Rushed out bugfix release to stay fully compatible with recent
	[git-annex] which introduced v7 to replace v6.

	### Fixes

	- [install]: be able to install recursively into a dataset ([#2982])
	- [save]: be able to commit/save changes whenever files potentially
	  could have swapped their storage between git and annex
	  ([#1651]) ([#2752]) ([#3009])
	- [aggregate-metadata]:
	  - dataset's itself is now not "aggregated" if specific paths are
		provided for aggregation ([#3002]). That resolves the issue of
		`-r` invocation aggregating all subdatasets of the specified dataset
		as well
	  - also compare/verify the actual content checksum of aggregated metadata
		while considering subdataset metadata for re-aggregation ([#3007])
	- `annex` commands are now chunked assuming 50% "safety margin" on the
	  maximal command line length. Should resolve crashes while operating
	  ot too many files at ones ([#3001])
	- `run` sidecar config processing ([#2991])
	- no double trailing period in docs ([#2984])
	- correct identification of the repository with symlinks in the paths
	  in the tests ([#2972])
	- re-evaluation of dataset properties in case of dataset changes ([#2946])
	- [text2git] procedure to use `ds.repo.set_gitattributes`
	  ([#2974]) ([#2954])
	- Switch to use plain `os.getcwd()` if inconsistency with env var
	  `$PWD` is detected ([#2914])
	- Make sure that credential defined in env var takes precedence
	  ([#2960]) ([#2950])

	### Enhancements and new features

	- [shub://datalad/datalad:git-annex-dev](
	  provides a Debian buster Singularity image with build environment for
	  [git-annex]. [tools/bisect-git-annex]() provides a helper for running
	  `git bisect` on git-annex using that Singularity container ([#2995])
	- Added [.zenodo.json]() for better integration with Zenodo for citation
	- [run-procedure] now provides names and help messages with a custom
	  renderer for ([#2993])
	- Documentation: point to [datalad-revolution] extension (prototype of
	  the greater DataLad future)
	- [run]
	  - support injecting of a detached command ([#2937])
	- `annex` metadata extractor now extracts `annex.key` metadata record.
	  Should allow now to identify uses of specific files etc ([#2952])
	- Test that we can install from
	- Proper rendering of `CommandError` (e.g. in case of "out of space"
	  error) ([#2958])

* tag '0.11.1':
  Adjust the date -- 25th fell through due to __version__ fiasco
  BF+ENH(TST): boost hardcoded version + provide a test to guarantee consistency in the future
  This (expensive) approach is not needed in v6+
  small tuneup to changelog
kyleam added a commit to kyleam/datalad that referenced this issue Dec 4, 2018
Similar to the cfg_text2git new line issue (dataladgh-2954, fixed by
eed1cac), setup_yoda_dataset creates a malformed attribute line:

    **/.git* annex.largefiles=nothing

Use GitRepo.set_gitattributes() so that new lines are properly
handled.  Don't bother checking if the attribute exists since the
procedure is documented as assuming a just-create dataset.
