Yesterday I downloaded the latest eclipse ee kepler R2 (20140224-0627), together with bundled e-git (3.2.201312181205-r) Running on windows 7 jdk 7_055.|
I'm on a small team with approx 5 developers (none of them is using e-git, all are using eclipse) all windows, I succesfully cloned the existing repository.
After browsing the projects and looking in the files and pressing "save" a few times, undoing my chanes etc, some files show up dirty ('>') in my proces explorer but do not seem dirty when reviewing the diff. Also "replacing with HEAD or git index leaves the files dirty. The only thing I think has changes is the timestamp.
I googled a bit and likewise cases showed up a few years back, including some bug entries in jira I believe. Other solutions like refreshing, restarting eclipse, replacing in git staging view did not work, and leaves the files dirty.
Git "reset hard" works but resets everything and this is only available at project level, it would be nice if i can reset individual files or directories inside a directory.
Are there other things to be done which I have overlooked?
I'm not a git expert and havent much experience with e-git, but i think integration with eclipse is great and can be a valid alternative for other solutions.
