Commit dialog: sort untracked files behind modified files

stevep 2 weeks ago • updated 2 weeks ago 4

At times I have a lot of unversioned files, when I commit, these are not differentiated from tracked files and the tracked files are hard to see. Could tracked files be put at the top of the list.

Why don't you ignore unversioned files? You may even ignore them only for you in .git/info/exclude

I am porting legacy software and the unversioned files will typically be tracked at a later date but I am not ready yet. I currently use TortoiseHg and this works the way I described.

I don't think we want to change the order as suggested by default. But untracked files could be sorted down-most if Preferences option Suggest to Add untracked files is deselected.

You have an option in the view menu to not show unversioned files but this is ignored by your commit dialog. There is an option  suggest to "add untracked files" for the commit command, but not to hide them.

I will not comment anymore !. Other than this I am impressed by SmartGit so far.
