Git vs Special:ExtensionDistributor/BoilerPlate

Is there any difference in following the download directions under "Usage" vs just download the extension from the distributor? The article talked about how the command line steps will prevent git metadata from downloading, but I see the same .git files in both.

Honestly I'm not too familiar with git and overwhelmed with how many files are inside the BoilerPlate extension.

No, I don't think there is. You just have to delete the `.git` directory, and re-init it as a new repository.

By the way, have you seen mwstew? It's pretty cool way to start a new extension.
