If I create a patch by "team->create patch" it seems to ignore the "gitignore" file.
However I did only one or two changes and this results in patches of 1MB size. Looking at the patch all the thousands of class files are reported:
diff --git bin/org/eclipse/php/core/codeassist/ICompletionContext.class bin/org/eclipse/php/core/codeassist/ICompletionContext.class
new file mode 100644
Binary files differ
Why does "create patch" look at the class files? They are ignored by .gitignore and should not be mentioned within any patches. Patches should only respect files that are under version control.
Is there a way to let egit really ignore all gitignore paths? Or is it a bug?
