There is no need to put askbot and the bits of your site into the same repository even if you want to pull askbot from the repo.

For example - you can "pip-install" askbot into the virtual environment in the source form:

virtualenv env --no-site-packages
source env/bin/activate
askbot-setup #and continue as in the manual


This way you will get:

mysite/
settings.py #and other project files
env #with all the virtualenv files

git init

Now you will have askbot inside the env/src in an independent repository, which will be ignored together with all the environment files from your site repo.
