Hello.

I wanted to draw the attention of developers.
On a very sad thing.
You may not know the facts when people haven't tried to upgrade to newer versions of the Eclipse build and its plugins for years.
Do you know why?
Because it is extremely dangerous to touch the configured Assembly, because it just collapses.
I've been working on Eclipse Neon for more than 5 years .
And what do I see in the latest version of 2019?
Discouraging problems both were and remained.

Please explain why these settings are needed in the IDE if they are not used by plugins?

JGit and EGit configuration of ignored files is implemented in the same way like native git does that, by looking at .gitignore files [1] in the working tree.
This is done to ensure the same files are ignored by the git integration in Eclipse and by the native git implementation.
The dialog in your screenshot is from the generic team provider implementation in Eclipse which doesn't know about the native git implementation.
