I have quite many files that I set as
git update-index --assume-unchanged <file>
In some cases my branch is messed up and diverged with origin/master. Let's say
and have 4 and 8 different commits each, respectively.

git reset (which would unstage from the index any added changes)
You can see a full analysis of the differences between

--skip-worktree is trying very hard to preserve your local data. But it doesn’t prevent you to get upstream changes if it is safe. Plus git doesn’t reset the flag on
But ignoring the '
reset --hard' command could become a nasty surprise for a developer.
