What do you do if you need to ignore some local files, but would prefer not to commit that rule to everyone in .hgignore?
(E.g. you’ve created a folder in the repo for your own needs)
There’s a global .hgignore which you can configure from %PROFILE%\hgrc, but using it to list all exceptions from everywhere is ugly.
Turns out you can add per-repository .hgignore overrides this way too! Edit repo’s hgrc:
ignore = .hg/.hgignore-local
It wouldn’t be committed as it’s inside .hg, and it would be parsed in addition to repo’s normal .hgignore.
