PDK 1.7.1

Method Found: Needs Assessment
Release Notes: Bug Fix
Release Notes Summary: Fixes an issue where the .gitattributes file was not being managed by PDK.
QA Risk Assessment: Needs Assessment


I was reviewing a PR for apt when I noticed that it was for the .gitattributes file which, to my knowledge, should have been managed by the PDK.
Upon examining the file I noticed that it also contained the managed by ModuleSync message at the top of it that should have been automatically stripped out when we swapped over.
I then altered the .gitattribute file of my local copy of stdlib and ran PDK update to see what would happen only for my change to be ignored. I repeated my experiment with the PDK convert command and a local copy of apt.

Yeah, .gitattributes was chosen to be managed at initialisation time only, so PDK update and convert won't touch it if it already exists. I think it's worth starting a discussion around whether we should change this behaviour.

I think it would be better to keep it updated. We've had a change to the template for the file so know all the modules are out of date with it.

We can move the .gitattributes file to the moduleroot and have it actively managed.
