    Hey Rob...

    https://github.com/wmcbrine/MultiMail/pull/27

    I found your controversial comments suggesting that gitignore files are useful in
    git repos very insightful. ;)


    I left a comment on your PR that essentially supports your radical thinking.

    /me chuckles at "radical thinking".

    It's not a big deal, I thought I was being helpful to others as well as the future me that clones this repo again, as I'm sure I will.

    I didn't agree with Mcbrine's comment on your (?) issue here https://github.com/wmcbrine/MultiMail/pull/21
    asserting that there's "no reason" for a .gitignore file in a repo. Of course there are reasons (and I gave him one) and his response was a dismissive "Good grief". Okay, that's fine. It's his repo and it's not a big a deal, but as he stated, it's a pet peeve of his that he apparently doesn't like talking about. Whatever. <shrug>

    Yeah, there are tons of projects to work on. Not worth giving much thought when

    things like that happen. As you say, his project.

    But I was kind of amused (and puzzled) when I saw he locked that PR for comments
    after you left yours.

    I'm curious to see how he'll review the PR I left this morning.

    Hopefully doesn't trigger another peeve. :-)

    Hi Rob,

    I had to edit it twice. My first rev was horrible. I really need to stop trying to
    code late at night! :) But I think every coder has been on that train before. ;)

    The PR fixes the install target and adds an uninstall target to the makefile. I

    haven't heard from him yet. I think it's a good PR but probably could be better.
    I'm not used to writing makefiles; my experience with automake and autoconf files.
