Hold on Cowboy
This blog post is pretty old. Be careful with the information you find in here. It's likely dead, dying, or wildly inaccurate.
Just a hint, it’s a lot easier than Subversion. My love for Subversion grows colder each day.
In your repository root directory you’ll want to create a file called
.gitignore. In that file you’ll want to specify files and folders to ignore. For example.
Ignore the entire Magento
The root repository .gitignore file will act as a global but can be overridden in subdirectories by creating a
.gitignorein those directories.
Empty directories do not get tracked by Git. If you want them to be tracked, they need to have something in them. Usually doing a touch .gitignore is enough to keep the folder tracked.
This one stumped me for a little bit, anyway, it pays to read.
