Bug Description

Currently, when a user chooses to upload a branch, there is not much control over which files are added. The only control given is to ignore new files. That's good, but sometimes a build process edits files already existing within the project, which means that GroundControl will upload those files, even though they aren't part of the relevant changes.

Here is an example of a recently uploaded branch: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~andrewfister/deja-dup/bugfix-lp-672781/revision/743

The only file relevant to the bug fix is AssistantRestore.vala, but the po files were forced to be uploaded, since they were marked as "Edited", being part of the project files.

My idea is that in the dialog for uploading a branch, check boxes should be added to each line which will allow one to include or exclude each file. All boxes should be checked by default, and clicking the "Ignore" button will automatically uncheck all "New" and "Added" files.
