git merge should ignore one directory
I have tons of data in directory called reports. While doing git merge with another branch I am getting lots of conflicts for files under reports directory. I would like git merge to ignore files under reports.
In another words I would like all the data from reports from master and not from lab branch.
Is that possible?
This is what I am doing right now.
git checkout master
git merge lab
