My question is this: if the .gitattributes file differs between branches,
which one will git checkout use if you switch from branch1 to branch2? Will
it use the one in the working directory before checkout, i.e., the one that
was on branch1? In that case, if the .gitattributes file on branch2
contains rules specific to files on branch2, git will fail to apply those
rules. Or does git read the .gitattributes file directly from the
to-be-checked-out commit in the repository, so that it can always apply
that .gitattributes file to a commit that it is part of? Same question for
