Git ignore file permission change
You have a situation, where you did not edit a file under git version control. But you changed the files permission. By default git will still identify this as a version change.
If you don’t want git to acknowledge file permission as a change, then try this command.
git config core.filemode false
git will ignore the file permission(mode) changes made using chmod command

From git-config(1): core.fileMode If false, the executable bit differences between the index and the working copy are ignored; useful on broken filesystems like FAT. See git-update-index(1). True by default.
