Yeah I'm not sure on contrib policy for this but core at least has moved away from including a .gitignore as per #1170538: Rename core .gitignore file to example.gitignore and add explanatory comments.
I'd put in another vote for removing it from the module here.
Issue #2300065 by Steven Jones | ram4nd: Remove .gitignore file.
Thanks, I've removed it.
The last submitted patch, 2: remove_gitignore_file-2300065-2.patch, failed testing.
