Description pekarna 2011-07-20 18:19:39 UTC

1) Create a project in NetBeans
2) In shell (outside NetBeans), run e.g. git init
3) Go back to NetBeans, right-click the project -> Versioning

This menu is missing something to re-scan the project for versioning.
There's only "Import/Initialize ..." which is not what's needed.
It's quite often case that users import/checkout projects in command line.

Even closing and re-opening the project does not help.
User needs to delete the cache in ~/.netbeans/var !

Thanks for considering.

should work in 7.4, can you try? fixed as part of core-main #472dd31d7f51, external git init should be recognized now and the IDE should recognize the project as a git one. So there is no need for such an action
