[Pkg-mediawiki-devel] gitignore and friends in tarballs

In Debian we have a build line:

 find debian/mediawiki -depth \( -name ".cvsignore" -o -name ".gitignore" \
   -o -name ".arch-ids" \) -exec rm -rf {} \;

It would be much nicer if this happened upstream as part of producing
tarballs. Such files are only useful in checkouts, not snapshots.

(Is there a good place to report distributor pseudo-bugs or is this
list acceptable?)
