I like trying out many lesson projects. Often they involve cloning github repos. I know the repos aren't mine and I often add a lot of my own commentaries for my personal learning purposes.
I use vscode as my editor. Vscode tracks my changes and asks me to commit them but I really don't want to do that at all.
I'd rather keep my personal learning notes and comments private at this point. It's not that I don't want to share them. It's more that as a newbie I'd be embarrassed to so so. Maybe later on.
I normally don't fork the repos. I download them into my personal local projects folders. After a bunch of not committed changes, vscode gives me a message something like I have too many uncommitted changes.
Can anyone give me some advice on how to do all my local learning commentaries and notes without publishing them in github or becoming a nuisance with ridiculous pull requests, and stop vscode from telling me I have too many uncommitted changes?
