Not in Git, git is a source code management system and not a backup. If anything, I have an example config with a different name (config.distrib) otherwise you pollute git with a ton of changes to config files, and it gets worse when you have multiple conflicting changes (dev vs live/server 1 vs sever 2 etc).

Passwords, keys or any other private info should not be stored in Git, instead, they should be in a proper backup system.
