I have changed the git ignore file to ignore *.suo
however I had a *.suo file which will not merge from one branch to
another because it is binary.
So i deleted it from the "merge to" branch thinking this would allow
You need to 'delete' it/them from both branches using 'git rm <file>',
and then commit that change to each branch.
This will make it so that the merge does not see either file in their
respective 'last commit's.
This highlights that it is possible to 'track' ignored files, either as
a continuation of a previous 'add', or by adding an otherwise ignored
to merge and it would just be added
rather than a binary merge being atempoted.
However now I have
Binary files a/:l:....... .suo and b/:3...... .suo differ
how do I get the merge to work.
I am not interested in su files any more in any way re git
hence putting *.suo in gitignore file
The rest of the merge will not go because of this. How do I resolve
