This adds an -s|--silent-ignore option to git-add, which causes ignored files that were specified explicitly on the command line to be silently ignored, rather than abandoning the command. I found this useful for scenarios where you want to feed the file list into git add via find or other external commands (`find .... | xargs git add'), which you wouldn't want to carefully tune so they don't output any ignored files. git ls-files doesn't have find's filtering capabilities, and using it in place of find would kind of violate "one job one tool" anyway. I'm not really a git guru, so maybe I'm missing something, and I'm unsure how useful this new option is for a general audience. OTOH the patch is trivial. Check it out.
The update applies on top of "master" (261b5119).
