Set Git to stop tracking file

I have found the need to ignore a file with out using the .gitignore. In my case its because of a chrome driver that we using for Cucumber and Watir. The office has a standard setup with a certain repository, however on my Mac chrome likes to update. This causes an issue with versioning of the driver. So I wanted to put a new chromedriver in my repository folder but not ignore it from the repository. To do this little trick I can update the index and tell it to assume the file is unchanged.git update-index --assume-unchanged <file> If you have the need to reverse the tracking of the file.git update-index --no-assume-unchanged <file>

Maybe this could inspire you to take a crack at it on your own.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the United States of America please take this to your heart. The sons and daughters of current and future generations are revolting against the Lord God Most High.

We are the richest sinful nation in the world, and are weighed down by the luxurious appeal of corruption and iniquity of others. We have abandoned the Lord, have no regret for the sin in our hearts and have completely turned away from him. When will this rebellion end? When will we see that the pain and suffering of bad health, depr…
