Documentation for double asterisk glob expansion
Where can I find documentation on double asterisk in glob expansion?

It is discussed in the [.gitignore section of Pro Git](https://git-scm.com/docs/gitignore#_pattern_format) and also works in `ls **/*` to list all terminal files.

It is also supported by python's [glob library](https://docs.python.org/3/library/glob.html).
