gitignore-boilerplates makes for a more meaningful package name and is
also the name of the upstream repo [1] Debian is considering using the
same name as well [2].

What do you think about keeping gitignore-boilerplates-git and
deleting gibo-git? You can ask the current maintainer to disown
gitignore-boilerplates-git and then reply to this thread so we can
remove gibo-git.
