hg forget [OPTION]... FILE...

forget the specified files on the next commit

    Mark the specified files so they will no longer be tracked
    after the next commit.

    This only removes files from the current branch, not from the
    entire project history, and it does not delete them from the
    working directory.

    To delete the file from the working directory, see :hg:`remove`.

    To undo a forget before the next commit, see :hg:`add`.

    .. container:: verbose

      Examples:

      - forget newly-added binary files::

          hg forget "set:added() and binary()"

      - forget files that would be excluded by .hgignore::

          hg forget "set:hgignore()"

    Returns 0 on success.
