removing files part of a later-added git ignore

Dear Future Jamie

When you add a gitignore to an existing project, to force git to release the files you don’t want, run the following from the directory where the project is located (note the extra period at the end of the 2st two commands)

1 git rm -r –cached . 2 3 git add . 4 5 git commit -am "Remove ignored files" 6
