Hi,

In one specific Java project I need to commit the class files in the bin folder. So I've manually added this to the
..gitignore file:

!/bin/

Nevertheless EGit (I assume so) occasionally adds another entry:

/bin/

The result is that the .class files are no longer stored in Git. Is there a way to prevent EGit from adding that entry
only in that specific project?

Cheers
/Eike

This is currently not supported. EGit currently only has a global preference to switch on/off auto-ignoring of
derived resources globally for the complete workspace.

If this preference is switched on it will auto-generate a new ignore rule if a resource change event signals
there are new derived resources and these resources are not ignored according to the current gitignore rules.
If this preference is switched off it will not generate ignore rules for derived resources.

Thanks, got it ;-)
