Duplicated space synchronization


I’ve created a duplicated space from one of my spaces and gave the duplicated space a new name by changing the README.md file.

The idea is that the duplicated space would be identical to the original but with different environment variables to provide slightly different functionality from the original.

I would like to use the Synchronize duplicated Space feature available on the HF platform, but unfortunately that won’t work since I’ve made changes in the README.md file (to change the name of the dup space) so the the two space no longer share the same commits.

Any idea how to solve this?
Is there a way for HF not to monitor the README.md file?
