I've never seen a valid argument for keeping this line in this file, yet I've seen dozens of people complain about it. It's bitten me and lots of others in the past.
"profile" doesn't belong in Objective-C.gitignore
Thanks for this! I'm not familiar with Objective C, and I can't easily find anything about this file by searching, so would you be able to explain why people have suggested it be ignored and your case against it?
Add Xcode support.
Reading some blog posts it seems like this was a mystery to some people all the way back in 2009. I have no idea what the historical reasoning behind this is. One theory in reading most people's .gitignores, is they include a comment above the "profile" line saying something like "OS X junk", and it's typically coupled with the .DS_Store. So this leads me to believe that a profile (not .profile) was something generated by OS X. Either that or maybe convention where the output of profiles(1) was a file called profile? I'm shooting in the dark here which is probably reason enough to just remove this line until someone says otherwise.
Yep, sounds good. Thanks for doing the research. I'll fix that up
Remove profile rule from Xcode template. Fixes #956
Remove profile from Obj-C to match #956
