Discussion on: I just asked: Are .gitignore files from directories above the repository's or from home directory loaded in any versions of Git?

the problem is that it is only a test on the newest version. and i work on systems that are not only old debian but also not maintained by me — university systems. so i would have to test on each of these. i need an answer from someone familiar with git changelog in this aspect. there must have been some versions that did ~/.gitignore, there is so much advisory posting mentioning it

thanks for effort
