Hi.
I'm using a/m file in git to have git ignore file repository-wide.

In eclipse, it seems this file isn't consulted. The only other way I know of ignoring files is via a project-specific .gitignore.

Is there a way to use ~/.config/git/ignore in eclipse?

BTW: ATM, using the ggts bundling of eclipse (3.5.1-RELEASE).

Thanks Smile

JGit and EGit follow the reference documentation [1] to look for ignore rules. The path you mentioned
isn't on that list by default. You may add it by configuring core.excludesfile in ~/.gitconfig with the
absolute path to your additional ignore file.

Hi. I think I can actually see $HOME/.config/git/ignore mentioned in the reference you provided:

<quote>
Which file to place a pattern in depends on how the pattern is meant to be used.

Patterns which a user wants git to ignore in all situations...Its default value is $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/git/ignore. If $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is either not set or empty, $HOME/.config/git/ignore is used instead.

We're not supporting the XDG stuff, simply because noone has written the code yet.
