I'm using Eclipse Luna Java/DSL package and using EGit. It's been working great until a few days ago. I copied/pasted/renamed a source file from within Project Explorer and this new file refuses to get added to the index. I tried deleting and re-adding it to the index but nothing has helped so far.

Eclipse DSL Tools

Version: Luna Service Release 1a (4.4.1)
Build id: 20150109-0600

Eclipse Git Team Provider 3.4.2.201412180340-r org.eclipse.egit.feature.group Eclipse EGit

- Is this file contained in an Eclipse project ?
- Did you copy the file in Eclipse or externally ?
- If you copied it outside Eclipse you might need to call "Refresh" in Eclipse on the containing folder or project.

I copied and pasted the file in the Eclipse Project Explorer window. Gave it a new name along the way. Tried it again, just accepted the "Copy of...." default name and the same problem with that file as well.

Here's some more context.

I am using Eclipse DSL for Java. You open the first instance of Eclipse and write your DSL (plugin) code. When you launch this, you launch a new Eclipse application where you use the plugins and write Java code.

Copying a source file works fine in the second instance of Eclipse. When you do that, the new file icon appears in Project Explorer with a little "?" in the lower right corner. If you rename a file, it shows up with a "+" on it, to automatically add itself to your Git repository. In the first instance of Eclipse, the icon appears but no Git icon overlay ever shows up.

This is the console output from the first Eclipse:

This is so repeatable I'm surprised nobody else reports it. So, how do you copy an existing file in your project to a new file and add it to the index? Copy-Paste in Project Explorer clearly does not work.

You're all going to laugh, but all of the files in question had been magically added to the .gitignore file. So I cleared that out and it works fine now. I had never looked at the .gitignore before... is there a way to prevent copy/pasted or open/save as files from automatically getting .gitignored? Because when I copy or rename something I usually want it part of the project.

If the preference "Team > Git > Projects > Automatically ignore derived resources" is switched on EGit will
auto-ignore derived resources (typically generated by the build, e.g. class files).
