I've been using SVN/Subversive for years and wanted to get into Git. I've decided to give EGit a try. |
When I follow the tutorial on this page:
...I end up with a project and a git repository and everything (including git-related stuff) seems to work fine. I can commit, view history, etc. However, when I view the project in a navigator view, the .git repository folder is visible and shows in the view as unversioned-files.
This doesn't seem right. None of the screenshots in the tutorials show a visible .git folder. Also, when I clone a remote git repository and create a new project from it, the .git folder is properly hidden from view.
Is there something simple I'm missing here? Is this a known bug?
I'm running Helios on Windows. I have the most recent EGit plugin as of the time of this writing.

I discovered that if I share a project with the project tree nodes open
then I can see the .git folder in Package Explorer (assuming you haven't
filtered "*.resources"). But share the project with the project node
collapsed and you don't see it.
