      In order to save space and bandwidth when installing doctrine using Composer, I have added .gitattributes removing files and folders unnecessary when using doctrine as a dependecy.

      (extracted from http://getcomposer.org/doc/02-libraries.md#light-weight-distribution-packages)

      Including the tests and other useless information like .travis.yml in distributed packages is not a good idea.

      The .gitattributes file is a git specific file like .gitignore also living at the root directory of your library. It overrides local and global configuration (.git/config and ~/.gitconfig respectively) when present and tracked by git.

      Use .gitattributes to prevent unwanted files from bloating the zip distribution packages.

      // .gitattributes
      /Tests export-ignore
      phpunit.xml.dist export-ignore
      Resources/doc/ export-ignore
      .travis.yml export-ignore
      Test it by inspecting the zip file generated manually:

      git archive branchName --format zip -o file.zip

      Note: Files would be still tracked by git just not included in the distribution. This will only work for GitHub packages installed from dist (i.e. tagged releases) for now.
