I've found that there are times when I need to pull down a repository, but when working with other people, there's always that certain file that holds particular user-specific customizations. We need to pull it down the first time, but every time afterward, I'd prefer it not get updated - pushed or pulled.
Is there a way to do this?
EDIT: Maybe I should use a hook script to download the file once? Forgive my GIT noobishness.
