Discussion on: Where do you store your .env files?

If you don't use configuration management tools (Chef, Puppet, etc), you can store them in Gists, Confluence, or similar documentation products. Also you can provide a default eg .env.default that can be used as a prototype with basic values (local env URL, local service configs, etc). At the very least, the default/template can list out the env variables that the app supports in any given commit.
