Thanks to this stackoverflow question, I’ve learned a useful git trick:
git update-index —assume-unchanged [
and its counterpart:
git update-index —no-assume-unchanged [
This pair of commands lets me keep a default file in the repo (e.g. a sample config) and modify it locally without git complaining about changed files. Handy!
