First of all, there is
that you should apply to those responsible for that mess ;)
If you have to deal with that sort of situation then a textconv filter
might get you as close as possible. Use "grep -v '^\* IP.Board v*'" as a
textconv filter for those files, and those changes will disappear from
the diff. (I do something like that for tracking my gitk config, which
stores last window sizes.)
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in
the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
