howto ignore temporary git files on the jump list

Oliver Graute
Hello list,

I use vim to edit my git commits and for git merges and rebasing.
Because of this I get these kind of temporary files in my jump list:

.git/rebase-merge/git-rebase-todo
.git/MERGE_MSG
.git/COMMIT_EDITMSG

Is there any way to prevent them from being registered?

Best regards,

Oliver

Hey Oliver,

My suggestion would be to edit these types of files in a split window or in a new tab page.  Since the jumplist is separate for each window and since the jumplist is inherited from a parent window, you can avoid having these items in your jumplist by not "splitting off" from a window in which you're editing these files.

I'm not aware of any setting that will disable the jumplist for a particular file.

Best,
Jason
