I'm committing some selenium tests for departmental use and the first
file is a login script which has two fields for user and password. I'm
committing them with some default junk values, but I would like to
have everyone pull the script and the following files but be able to
change the login script with their own values without git thinking it
is a change that has to be tracked.
I guess the simplest way would be to have everyone pull it, then add
that file to the ignore list. Then if I ever want to add more to the
login script I would unignore it and then commit it, then readd it to
the ignore list.
Or another method might be to tell git to not track these two lines of
the login file only or maybe just not track the first n lines.
Are either of these methods possible with git?
