Description everflux 2013-04-21 14:41:20 UTC
When reviewing changes (team -> show changes) I would like to have the option to add files to the .gitignore configuration.
(Right click, "ignore" like in the file/project view)
Comment 1 Ondrej Vrabec 2013-04-21 15:43:24 UTC
I'll consider adding the action to the menu.
BTW, you can ignore from the views even now. AFAIK it should be possible to select the files you want to ignore and run Team -> Git -> Ignore

Yes, similar but not the same. And honestly i have no intention of fixing that. Because all commit dialogs are basically one-time snapshot of your checkout, it is currently not supported (and never was intended) to recompute every-time you change something. Because usually ignoring a file affects also other files (like .gitignore) every change in the commit dialog would have to reparse status of all files in the project. I just don't think i have enough resources to fix this minor enhancement right now. Leaving that open until enough votes come, i have some time to spare or a patch is delivered.
