Git ignoring .gitignore fix
Sometimes Git will just appear to “ignore” an entry in
.gitignore, usually right after a new entry has been added to the ignore file, or an updated ignorefile has been pulled down from a remote repo.
tl;dr this is the solution:
git update-index --assume-unchanged path/to/file
This was specifically a problem with the
.obsidian/workspace file after I added it to the top-level ignorefile in Knowledgebase.
