I want to remove certain files from the index of a git repository, but
retain them in the directory.They should be removed from all branches, that
is, when finished they should exist as untracked files. I tried using git
filter-branch with git-rm --cached, as described
in https://help.github.com/articles/remove-sensitive-data/, however, that
removed them from the directory. I could restore the files (from the
original, I'm working in a clone, of course), but am wondering why git-rm
--cached removed the working files.
