Description Jens 2013-04-09 11:42:57 UTC
I am using git with xamarin studio

when I do a "review changes" some files do always appear which I do not want to have in my repository, for example the "userpref" file but some other files too.
there should be some "ignore this file for revision control" functionality, so I do not need to uncheck these files each and every time I want to commit something

I suggest it to be placed in the context menu (right mouse button) over a file in the "review changes" window

I added context menu actions for this. If found that it's more convenient in Review Changes, I shall add an option to add to ignore from there too.

Thanks for the report.

Will be included in upcoming releases.

Oh, and your problem here is that you added the userpref file and other files to version control. Review Changes does not show unversioned files.
