Git and .idea directories

I'm relatively new to both git and PyCharm. I've inferred the obvious, that the .idea directory is where all-things-PyCharm specific go in the .idea directory. I'm curious whether people add any/all/none of that directory to their git repositories. At some level, if a coworker replicates my project with a clone/pull, I might want him to pickup some of the same settings. But probably not all. I'm curious what is normally done here.

TIA!

Basically it's safe to share the contents of the .idea folder except the workspace.xml and tasks.xml files that are specific to your local installation. You might be interested in:

Perfect! Thank you!

Is there per chance a way to add files to the .gitignore from the IDE? As in, a menu pick?

As far as I know, PyCharm doesn't provide a way to edit the .gitignore file (besides opening it as a text file of course :)
