zhongshengping Clean up .gitignore references to personal tools
Developers run all sorts of different tools within Git repositories,
any of which can leave their own special trashfiles all over the
place. We can't every hope to catalog them all, so better to
recommend developers simply configure a global core.excludesfile to
filter the irrelevant files which tend to get created by their
personal choice of tools.

To this end, remove the long-standing sections for "Mr Developer"
and "Editors" since their mere existence here sends the signal that
we welcome (and have time to review) additions for any old tool
someone ever might happen to try. Also add a comment block
explaining this, for clarity.

We can, and should of course, continue to list files created by the
tools recommended by our workflow (test frameworks called from tox,
documentation and packaging builds, et cetera).

This change is a port of I1b41efac219fca44e2548fc36633724d0ecfc0cb
from the openstack-dev/oslo-cookiecutter repository.

OpenStack library for privilege separation

This library helps applications perform actions which require more or less privileges than they were started with in a safe, easy to code and easy to use manner. For more information on why this is generally a good idea please read over the principle of least privilege and the specification which created this library.
