I found the amount of commits a bit overwhelming, so I decided to control the commits manually and to save only the Job information and not the Jenkins configuration. For this switch into your Jenkins jobs directory (Ubuntu: /var/lib/jenkins/jobs) and perform the “git init” command.
I created the following .gitignore file to store only the Git jobs information:
Now you can add and commit changes at your own will. And if you add another remote to your Git repository you can push your configuration to another server.
