Subject: [boost] [git-help][urgent] How do I ignore an upstream change to one file?
From: Rene Rivera (grafikrobot_at_[hidden])

When I attempt to do an update of the boost superproject I get and error:

Froggy:develop grafik$ git pull
error: Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by
Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can merge.
Froggy:develop grafik$

I know I've made changes. I also know I don't want to throw away my
changes. I also know that I don't want to merge the upstream changes to
that one file. Hence.. How do I do a pull and have git ignore the upstream
of only that file? (i.e. throw away the upstream changes because I know
that my changes supersede them)
