I have some symbolic links in my source and the git console has no problems. Whenever I try to commit or switch using EGit, it wants me to commit the symbolic link files which never completes because those files are already committed in another folder.

Please add a feature to ignore symbolic links, so that Egit can be used in Linux with sources containing symbolic links.

Thanks

I don't think so, because that talks of adding support. I am talking about having same behavior as git terminal program does, which is able to understand that the files in the symbolic linked folder have already been committed, and ignores them.

The request in bugzilla, by implication should solve your problem. JGit
today does not understand symbolic links in any way. It sees folders and
files.

People are looking at implementing a plugin to to the work when EGit is
run with Java 7. Since most of our users, I believe, don't use symbolic
links for cross-platform reasons. Our repos must be usable in Windows
too), it is not a show stopper.

If you want something else, it is not clear from the description.
