Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4181) some minor things to make Hadoop friendlier to git
Date Thu, 18 Sep 2008 18:14:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4181?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12632323#action_12632323

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-4181:
---------------------------------------

Are you using an old version of git?

>From http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/gitignore.html:

If the pattern ends with a slash, it is removed for the purpose of the following description,
but it would only find a match with a directory. In other words, foo/ will match a directory
foo and paths underneath it, but will not match a regular file or a symbolic link foo (this
is consistent with the way how pathspec works in general in git).

So my version will not ignore a build script that someone adds, or build directories somewhere
else in the directory tree. I think being more precise is a good thing when we are specifying
things to be ignored by scm.

> It would be nice to have a .gitignore file and a saveVersion that didn't fail under git.
