I think we should wait until  gets merged into that project: then that file could serve as a default .gitignore file for future AUR packages.
Wouldn't it be just easier to recommend that one a) edit the PKGBUILD b) run makepkg -g and change the sums in the PKGBUILD b) run makepkg in order to build the package c) run pacman -U in order to install the package (if the maintainer actually uses it) d) delete (by hand) unnecessary files and directories and then e) git add . etc in order to update?
I mean, isn't .gitignore an unnecessary complication? No one will want to keep src/ and pkg/ etc after they are done anyway. Since they will delete them after (e), they might as well do it before (e). Just my opinion.
Something like that?
If you want to go that way, yes, something like that.
