Thanks for the detailed post mortem Carlton. Andrew’s suggested approach to do at least a checkout to a fresh directory makes sense to me. Even got checkout and clean aren’t enough to bring an exisiting checkout folder to the same state as git won’t touch files in the gitignore. Note you can do a checkout or a local repo to a different directory, you wouldn’t need to reclone from a different remote.
Jamesie’s suggestion to use CI is also valid but a bunch more work. I guess the main advantage is you get a blank slate container to work in, which a fresh checkout to a temp dir provides most of the gain for less work.
