Git: Ignoring Version-Controlled Files

Use git-update-index to temporarily ignore changes to files that are already under version control:

git update-index --assume-unchanged <files>

To undo that use:

git update-index --no-assume-unchanged <files>

Also have a look at the skip-worktree and no-skip-worktree options for update-index if you need this to persist past a git-reset
