 To make development on GitHub easier, we could consider adding a
 `.gitattributes` file for annotating generated files.

 The `linguist-generated` attribute can be used to mark or unmark paths
 that should be ignored for the repository's language statistics and hidden
 by default in diffs.

 See https://docs.github.com/en/repositories/working-with-files/managing-
 files/customizing-how-changed-files-appear-on-github for more details
