|[cross-project-issues-dev] EGit / line ending problems with simrel repo|
Hi,I'm working on a Windows box and my clone of org.eclipse.simrel.build marks files dirty that I have not touched myself. Currently this is the case for:
mdt-ocl.b2aggrcon webtools.b2aggrcon My Git system config file contains: [core] autocrlf = true Egit displays no values for the *system* configuration in the properties view (UI bug? core bug? any bug??).Egit displays a duplicate value ("[true][true]") for the *global* configuration in the properties view (UI bug? core bug? any bug??).
Hard reset with EGit does nothing (bug?).Double-click on the dirty files in the staging view opens a Compare editor with no changes, both with or without "Ignore Whitespace Changes" (bug?).
The only way for me to solve this is very strange: I have to open a native Git shell and just execute "git status". One would think that's a pure read access command but mysteriously it removes the bogus changes from my workspace (or the EGit index?).
The EGit team tries to blame the Platform Compare framework ( https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=361503 ), which I can hardly believe. At no time in my 30 years computer life I had such fundamental problems with line ending characters (which I believe are the root cause). This all started with the advent of EGit.
Am I the only one with these problems, so that I have to revist my config again (which I've done a hundred times already)? Cheers /Eike ---- http://www.esc-net.de http://thegordian.blogspot.com http://twitter.com/eikestepper
