git-clear-soft — Soft clean up a repository

Description

Clears the repository to a state that it looks as if it was freshly cloned with the current HEAD, however, preserving all changes that are located in files and directories listed in .gitignore. It is a git-reset --hard together with deletion of all untracked files that reside inside the working directory, excluding those in .gitignore.
