vcsh repo status output

when I do vcsh dotfiles status, I - of course - get a lot of
"untracked" files, mainly all that aren't tracked by this vcsh repo.

[5/103]marc at swivel:~$ vcsh dotfiles status
On branch master
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.
Untracked files:
  (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)


nothing added to commit but untracked files present (use "git add" to track)
[6/104]marc at swivel:~$

Is this just a cosmetic issue? Is there any possibility to get rid of
it? What would be the place/name for a repo-specific gitignore file?

And, this is probably a general git question, is there a way to tell
git "all files that I didn't explicitly add are intentionally
untracked, don't bother me with those"?
