Newbie alert.

I'm using gitx on OSX 10.5.6.

My versioned directory containing .git looks like this:
  figs/ (various files here)
     (various other files here)

AB.xml, b.backup, and are large but essential files that are of no
interest to me. I'd like to treat them as versioned binaries.

I want to tell git(X) that AB.xml, b.backup, and need to be checked in
etc., but that I don't care to see them for diffs, history, or changes.

How do I do this? I read something about .gitattributes and put a
gitattributes in myDir, with:

AB.xml b.backup -crlf -diff

but could not get gitX to change what it did/showed.
