Egit shows linked resources with "Unknow" status even if already commited [message #645885] Mon, 20 December 2010 18:18 Go to next message

Hey guys,

I'm struggling with this issue and wondered if anyone had an idea on how to fix this.

I have a git repository "myrepo" with two folders in it "myproject" and "lib".
myproject contains an eclipse project which has an external source path pointing to lib. I.e. myrepo/.project has this in it:

<linkedResources>
<link>
<name>[source path] lib</name>
<type>2</type>
<locationURI>DOCUMENTS/myrepo/lib</locationURI>
</link>
</linkedResources>

Now, every time I commit something, every file in lib shows up in the list of files to be commited with a status of "Unknown".
If the file is called lib/mylibrary, the file path shows up as myproject: [source path] lib/mylibrary

When committing, no change actually gets committed for those entries but the problem is that with large libraries, this leads to a lot of clutter and noise making it hard to see what actually changed, and what's going into this commit.

I tried all variations in .gitignore to no avail.

Does anybody know how to hide / remove those entries of linkedResources in the commit changes?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks a bunch

Does anyone have an idea about this, or can possibly point to the part of the source code that handles this stuff?

Thanks
