1.12.1 changes the packaging process to use git archive and git attributes to exclude .gitignore files and other cruft that's only relevant for Git checkouts.

Since PR #367 was merged into the 1.12 branch, 1.12.1 will only include four .gitignore files, none of which are part of the resource dir, thus they won't be copied to the install prefix:

So I'd consider this issue fixed.

I can confirm that this bug is still present in the 1.12.0 release (at least when installing on Linux).

I guess some CMake magic has to be performed to filter out those .gitignore files when installing the game data.

See the updated list of installed .gitignore files for 1.12.0 in attachment.

wesnoth-data in community repository provides useless .gitignore files:
