In order to save space and bandwidth when installing doctrine using Composer, I have added .gitattributes removing files and folders unnecessary when using doctrine as a dependecy.
(extracted from http://getcomposer.org/doc/02-libraries.md#light-weight-distribution-packages)
Including the tests and other useless information like .travis.yml in distributed packages is not a good idea.
The .gitattributes file is a git specific file like .gitignore also living at the root directory of your library. It overrides local and global configuration (.git/config and ~/.gitconfig respectively) when present and tracked by git.
Use .gitattributes to prevent unwanted files from bloating the zip distribution packages.
Test it by inspecting the zip file generated manually:
git archive branchName --format zip -o file.zip
Note: Files would be still tracked by git just not included in the distribution. This will only work for GitHub packages installed from dist (i.e. tagged releases) for now.
Issue was closed with resolution "Fixed"
