I have updated my Eclipse for Committers to version 2021-12 (For MacOS), and found out that the default Git version installed is 6.0. Since Git deprecated some features who are still crucial to me, i tried to downgrade Git version to 5.11 (the last version i know that has the requested features).

But apparently Eclipse doesn't allow to uninstall any of it's Git add-ons, which is the first step in the downgrading process.

I tried to uninstall from different menu paths, but they all lead to failure. I also tried that with "Eclipse for Java developers" (non-committers), and with older versions of Eclipse, without success.

Does anyone know what can i do?

Thanks, Shahar

I don't know what the uninstallation problem might be. But which features do you mean? I'm not aware of any features having been removed since EGit 5.11.
