I would like to stop Git from showing ignored files in
, because having tons of documentation and config files in the list of Changed but not updated
files, renders the list half-useless.
Is it normal for Git to show these files?
I put the ignore information in a
file in the root directory of the Git repository and they are not added when using
git add .
but it seems that they are not fully ignored either, as they show up in the aforementioned list and do not
show up in the list printed by
git ls-files --others -i --exclude-standard
. Only files matched by the patterns in
show up there.
Could it be because at an earlier stage I didn't ignore them and they were thus committed at least once?
