allow upload (git push) of specific, additional file names/extensions

I generally edit and build LaTeX papers on my own machine, but I have collaborators who prefer Overleaf. Fortunately, Overleaf's git support lets us work together harmoniously. Unfortunately, Overleaf rejects my attempts to "git push" changes that create files with certain specific names: "SConstruct", ".chktexrc", and ".dir-locals.el".

Each of these files is quite useful to me when managing and building papers locally. While I don't expect Overleaf to support or *do* anything special with these files, it should at least *allow* them to be included in a project tree.

Would you please add these three to your white list? It would help my collaborations greatly. Thank you!

        I see this has been requested many times already, are files forbidden for security reasons ?
        I would like to be able to push the following extensions please:
        .gv (graphviz files, sometimes also called .dot)
        .pdf (latexpackage documentation)
        .svg (for my figures)
        .odp (I use libreoffice impress to generate simple images)
        .vim (for per project vim customization).
        Hope that's possible
        Cheers
