This feature has rolled out for files (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/use-group-policy#exclude-specific-kinds-of-files-from-being-uploaded) and we are looking to expanding it to folders in the future.

I find it ludicrous that OneDrive markets a portion of it's features as "backup", but then actively discourages me from working in a backed up location. If I have a have a project I'm working on, on my desktop, that has git repos in it, OneDrive likes to constantly warn me about how I'm deleting files and the sort... all part of the regular git workflow.
Why is it still not possible to right click and "Ignore this folder"? I am absolutely positive I'm not the only one with similar workflows to this.
We’re actively working on some architecture improvements that will significantly help reduce cases of high CPU.
