I have two projects using EGit. One shows all the .DS_Store files that Mac OS X creates in the unstaged changes list. The other does not. I can't find the difference between them to account for this. I have created .gitignore files everywhere to no avail. I have checked Preferencs > Team > Ignored Resources.
The project without was created last year. The project with was created a month ago. I updated from Mountain Lion to Maverick last week and am using Eclipse Version: Kepler Service Release 2
Build id: 20140224-0627
EGit 3.2.0.201312181205-r

Most likely you have committed the .DS_Store in the project where it's visible. Once something is
committed .gitignore has no effect on the file.

This is apparently the case though I do not understand how it happened as the ignore resources has .DS_Store automatically selected. So, I removed the project from git control and then put it back in. This time, .DS_Store did not appear in the unstated changed list. All I lost was my update history - no big deal on this project.
