Could the package description be imporved and explain _how_ it helps to
create the files? vim helps to create .gitignore files too, as does
echo.

You're absolutely right, it could.

Gitignorer fetches user-specified .gitignore templates from
github.com/gitignore, concatenates them together, then writes them to a
.gitignore file.

For example, if `gitignorer create java maven` is called,
gitignorer will fetch the Java and Maven templates from
github.com/github/gitignore, concatenate them together, and then write
them to a .gitignore file.

Is the above lacking a /github/ as github.com/github/gitignore ?

I now understand what the tool does. Maybe the short description should
then be:

A utility to create .gitignore files based on github's gitignore

Or can it work with other tools?
Cheers,
