Use .Gitignore Filtering when Copying Files Remotely

The Solution Explorer seems to utilize the .gitignore file, only showing files that are not "ignored", but when building on a remote Linux system all files starting from the root directory are copied over.

Does it seem reasonable to only copy files that make it past the .gitignore filtering rules? If not, is there a way to restrict what gets copied to a remote system?

    Please consider this - LOTS of time wasted copying files from the repo that are unnecessary for the build. Maybe it could be based somewhat on the CMake rules as well? But a way to ignore certain files/folders would be greatly appreciated.
