Failed assessment missing .gitignore in drawing branch

I received my feedback ( got a 3/4)
The questions you missed were:
’drawings’ branch
— a/.gitignore
+++ /dev/
null@@ -1 +0,0 @@

Do I have to start from scratch or can I just add .gitignore on to the drawing branch then commit it? Will it not work since i already merged? Also note, I used :wq to merge not a merge message.

Welcome to the forum!

Your interpretation of the diff looks correct. The auto-grader is just checking for the final content of the files in each branch, and does not look at the commands you used to get there. Therefore, it is fine to just make the correction in your current project and re-submit.
