Where did you expect to read about it? I see some mention of
.git/info/exclude in the gitignore(5) page, but I wouldn't be
surprised if there's room for improvement there (improvements
I suppose I might consider amending the opening sentence at:
"A gitignore file specifies intentionally untracked files that Git
to something that makes the point earlier about the similarity:
"Both gitignore and $GIT_DIR/info/exclude files specify intentionally
untracked files that Git should ignore."
"Like the $GIT_DIR/info/exclude file, gitignore files specify
intentionally untracked files that Git should ignore. The difference is
that files matched by a pattern in a gitignore file will be untracked
for all users of the repository."
The other thing is that there is no warning in the docs that
assume-unchanged is not an absolute promise to ignore. This is news to
me. I don't see this anywhere. I understand now that the use case is
performance, but that could be clearer.
