I am on Windows 7. Egit is marking files as changed (after I create a new project) if the execute permission is turned on in the git repository for the file. This makes the commit UI extremely cluttered, and I don't want to submit the files and turn off execute. The git command line tools are working fine. The problem is only with egit in eclipse. I have tried setting core.fileMode=false to no avail. Is this a bug? Is there a solution? I would like egit to treat the files as unmodified just as the git command line tools are.

Thanks,
Seth

Windows neither has execute permission nor file modes so why do you want to set core.fileMode to true ?

Can you please describe the steps to reproduce the problem. I am not sure whether you are cloning an existing remote repo or creating a completely local repository. And if you are working on a local repository with windows, how do you the the "execute permission" on files?

Ciao

Windows has an execute permission, but most applications set the excutable permission on all files regardless of whether it is needed or not, so it will usually be wrong as
soon as a file is changes, hence the default is not ignore the bit.
