Re: [BUG] ls-files '**' globstar matches one or more directories instead of zero or more directories

On IRC someone pointed me to the glossary section for pathspec, and I
find that even more confusing.

In the section about ":(glob)" it says:

> For example, "**/foo" matches file or directory "foo" anywhere, the same as pattern "foo".

This is not true for ls-files: ":(glob)**/.gitignore" is completely
different to ":(glob).gitignore".

The only place where it is true is inside .gitignore files, and there
the ":(glob)" syntax does not work.
