The current default value for "Skip files matching the regular expression" under "Downloads" and "Uploads" on the Advanced tab of the Transfers Preference panel is:

  .*~\..*|\.DS_Store|\.svn|CVS

I suggest that it be changed to:

  .*~\..*|\.DS_Store|\.svn|CVS|\.git

(i.e. adding a pattern for git archives).

Pros: this rule is coherent with restricting svn data, which is already in the default.

Cons: the proposed default will prevent effective backup of local .git repositories. Maybe only the Downloads default should be modified?

Will make this more or less match http://www.gnu.org/software/tar/manual/html_node/exclude.html#SEC103
