Dear Git Mailing List,
I have force added a file we usually like to ignore (but keep in the
repository). That was a change a while ago, and cannot be undone without
serious pain. I would like to re-ignore the file though, as we dont want
to track changes to it. Some of the options I came across are not useful
for me. For example
git rm --cached FILE // removes the file from the remote repository if I
push, not desirable
git update-index --assume-unchanged //Will ignore changes to the file
locally, but someone else clones and the file is tracked for them.
What we would like is to go back to the old state of affairs: the file
was in the working directory when someone cloned from the remote
repository, but changes to the file werent tracked or committed.
Any help would be appreciated.
