add #*# glob to .gitignore?

I want to add emacs autosave files to my .gitignore with the glob

but of course, lines starting with a hash are comment lines.

How can I get this into my .gitignore without it being treated as a comment?


Did you try


Since 1.6.2, \ should be supported in .gitignore (see this patch)

.gitignore learned to handle backslash as a quoting mechanism for comment introduction character "#".
