Description Federico Di Gregorio 2013-08-26 08:44:13 UTC
When a file "XXX.cs" is copied and pasted in the solution tree of VC-enabled (git in this case) project, it is added to the index with the new name "XXX (copy).cs". If the file is later renamed in the solution panel the change doesn't propagate to git and the index keeps the old name. This is visible by doing the copy+paste+rename and then opening the "Version Control->Review Solution and Commit" panel.

This doesn't happen with the most recent internal build. What version are you testing this on?
Comment 2 Federico Di Gregorio 2013-08-27 12:08:04 UTC
Fresh build from master. I attach the results of a 3-step procedure to reproduce the bug.

1) Create a new C# Console project, init the git (or publish it somewhere): you get a clean project with just 1 file and the Review
Solution and Commit panel is empty.

2) Copy and paste a file. Now Review Solution and Commit panel shows your new file (and the project, obviously).

3) Click on the "(copy)" file, F2 and rename it. Reopen the Review Solution and Commit panel shows still the old name, not the new one. Also, a "git status" from the command line shows that the index is quite messed up with the "(copy)" file both added and removed and the new, renamed file still untracked.

$ git status
# On branch master
# Changes to be committed:
#   (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)
#	nuovo file:   GitBroken/Program (another copy).cs
# Changes not staged for commit:
#   (use "git add/rm <file>..." to update what will be committed)
#   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
#	modificato:   GitBroken/GitBroken.csproj
#	eliminato:    GitBroken/Program (another copy).cs
# Untracked files:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)
#	GitBroken.userprefs
#	GitBroken/Program2.cs

This seems to be fixed in the new libgit2sharp provider support. Changing milestone.
