I'm trying out Magit for a monstrously large monorepo at work (think millions of lines of code) and there are many untracked build artifacts. From my shell I always use
git status -uno to avoid having git try to unenumerate all of the artifacts that should be ignored but aren't.
I wish I could just add things to the
.gitignore files, but sadly this is just not feasible (layer 8 problem in the networking stack...).
Can I configure magit to not interact with untracked files at all when refreshing?
I found this question, but I don't want to just hide the untracked section, but avoid the mega latency from git attempting to enumerate the thousands of untracked files (that I don't care about).
