I am new to Git and EGit, so I am probably doing something wrong...

I have a repository [1] with one plugin. I used EGit UI to add build folders to the ignore list. This has generated .gitignore file with [2] content. Despite this, when I invoke EGit commit action, the dialog lists add operations for all the files in the build directories.

What do I need to do to get EGit to ignore generated files?

Thanks,

- Konstantin

Does this work for anyone or is there something particular about my repository/configuration that is making this not work? I cannot imagine that everyone is content with filtering out all the binary files from the commit dialog with every commit.

Usually the bin folder is already ignored as derived folders are already filtered out via Team API, you should still add corresponding ignore entries so that also native Git knows about these ignored files.

I tried to reproduce your problem but no binary files showed up for me. Provide more details about used Eclipse and EGit versions and steps how to reproduce the problem.

This is pretty bizarre, but when I went to create a documented set of repro steps, I am not able to repro this problem in a new workspace with a new clone of the repository. The original workspace still exhibits that problem, but I don't know how to show a way to get to that state. It was the workspace I created the repository from initially, so I guess that could be connected. In any case, since using a fresh repository clone and a new workspace resolves this issue, I do not need to pursue this further.
