[gnutls-devel] GnuTLS | .gitignore lists `*.tmp*`, but `tests/cert-tests/templates/` is filled with lots of files matching *.tmpl (#1242)

Daniel Kahn Gillmor created an issue: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/issues/1242

I ran into this trying to revise !1435 -- git frowned on my adding a new template to `tests/cert-tests/templates/` because the common template name used in this directory (`*.tmpl`) matches an entry in the top-level `.gitignore`.

Looks like the `*.tmp*` was only added a couple years ago, in dc85966364994006f9337e4749d1487e4b8e16a1 by @alonbl.  (before that it used to just be `*.tmp`)

I'd recommend either reverting `.gitignore` to just contain `*.tmp` or renaming all the template files.  The former seems easier, but i also don't understand what @alonbl was aiming to catch with that revision.
