I'm afraid you'll have to reach for the main Git list  which is
frequented by the Git devs.
But while the contents of your question does indicate you possess
a reasonably advanced technical level, I'm oblidged to ask: did you
consider using "template files" to achieve your goal? I mean, the
necessity to have locally-modified files most frequently relates to
configuration files and stuff like this, and a sensible approach to
deal with this case is to keep templates of such files in the
repository (with special filenames, like the ".template" extension
added to each) and force the devs to *copy* them and tweak
appropriately for their systems. Would it work for your case?
