My Home (~/) dir somehow got added as part of my git repo, now i can't remove it
I noticed that my
git status suddenly includes my ~/ dir. When I did a
git add . -A It included some files that were recently included into the directory. I don’t know how they got there in the first place, but when i call
git rm --cached ~/ it refuses saying:
fatal: /Users/me/: '/Users/me' is outside repository
How can i get rid of this from the repository?
UPDATE: on request here is my
git status output:
On branch temp Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/temp'.

Turns out the directory ‘
~‘ is actually a Dir under my git repository and not the actual shell-resolved home directory. Thanks
@Paul Hicks for the insight.
