Hi,

I have a setup with one master project (lets call it PROJ) and a list of submodules. I have checked them all out by cloning the master project and selecting the option to include submodules. I now have the structure:

workspace/PROJ
workspace/PROJ/ABC
workspace/PROJ/ABC/a.txt
workspace/PROJ/ABC/b.txt
workspace/PROJ/ABC/c.txt
workspace/PROJ/XYZ
workspace/PROJ/WWW

Now my problem is that when I change /ABC/a.txt and does a commit on the ABC submodule from within Eclipse get the following "changed" list:

Removed a.txt
Removed b.txt
Removed c.txt
Untracked /ABC/a.txt
Untracked /ABC/b.txt
Untracked /ABC/c.txt

Can someone give me hints on why this happens, and maybe a way to get past it.

If i go to the console and does a "git status" in workspace/PROJ/ABC/ I get this:

# Not currently on any branch.
# Changes not staged for commit:
# (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
# (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
#
# modified: a.txt
#
# Untracked files:
# (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)
#
# Foo/

Foo is a directory which is not and should not be versioned.

Thank you in advance for any help, it will be greatly appreciated. Please tell me if you need any additional information.

Mads

Hi,

Do you have any suggestions on who to ask if not in this forum?

I really have a problem with this, and if I cannot resolve it I will have to get rid of Egit and handle all my git work from console - which will be a real set back.

EGit support for subdmodules is still an at early stage. It works well if you plan to use the submodules as a kind of updateable library that you don't modify yourself, in other words if someone else is maintaining this repository.

If you're the one who's responsible for maintaining such a repository, by modifying and updating submodules, EGit will not be very helpful, at least not so far. You'll have to do some operations with command-line Git (commit, for instance), status decorations won't be correct, the Git Staging view won't be correct, etc.

Thank you for your answer.

I think I will split to project into separate repositories instead of having to work around e-git/submodule quirks.
