I've used egit now for a while and it worked fine. I had the .git directories inside the project and had no problem.

We changed our projects layout and have the .git directory on a specific location.

I can't get this to work with egit.
Egit does not detect it because the .git directory is not a parent directory of the project folder.
I can't use the repositiory wizard/dialog because it always append the project name to the working directory. And even when I used tricks with names and I can click 'finish' the projects doesn't got shared.

All I want is to share a project and select the .git directory.

Did I miss something or is there a trick?

Thanks for any hint
René

No can do, currently at least. I haven't tried, but perhaps creating a .git file pointing to the real directory might work,
but I'm not sure.
