I've got a project that since a few days is behaving strangely. When I perform a change I see the file marked with the ">" symbol. If I commit I can see the file listed for the commit. After the commit the file is decorated with the "add" icon (the black square) and a new commit request shows me the same file. If I query the git repository from the command line I can see that the file is still in the stage and must be committed. If I git log the repository, the last commit is shown.
It does not mind how many times I commit from eclipse, the file still remains decorated and in the stage. If I commit from the command line than the file is removed from the stage and the decorator icon disappears.
I'm using git 1.7.1, eclipse helios 20110301-1815 and egit 0.1.11.
It worked fine up to a few days ago, and I'm pretty sure nothing changed in the machine. Any idea?
You really should be running at least egit 1.0 at this point. That's the current stable release. Probably you should be running 1.1, which is a significant advance over 1.0 and will become the stable release any day now. You're not likely to get much assistance for versions 0.x any more.
The first EGit release at Eclipse was 0.7, so either you misspelled the version or you are using a version which should be replaced by a recent one. EGit 1.1 was released yesterday, so I recommend to use that.
