Thanks eirc, for looking at this.  I tested it and Your example is
better than mine. 
Also, for migrating, it should be noted, that git does not apply ignore
rules to files it had already cached; so do a:

git rm --cached

… after adding these rules.
What else could be improved with the git commits security wise?  Are
there any problems with this .gitignore?

Also I am unsure, weather it is a good or bad idea, to include
!.gitignore in the .gitignore file .  Per default this file is not
included in commits and people should have the freedom to ignore
whatever they want.
