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.
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.
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.
