Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-08-23 16:32:54 UTC
The MD git addin makes inconsistent use of the git index (staged changes). For example, when renaming a file, MD performs a git add but does not perform the correponding git remove. That's very annoying for people using commandline git.

Given that MD's git addin doesn't actually use the index in its UX - it allows the user to commit files directly, ignoring the state of the index - it probably shouldn't touch the index at all. Either that, or it should actual maintain a consistent index.

I can't reproduce this bug. If I rename a file in the solution pad I can see both an add and a remove when looking for changes. Is there any specific use case I should try?
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-10-23 17:50:00 UTC
I can't reliably reproduce it, maybe there's some other state it depends on.
Comment 3 Marius Ungureanu 2014-08-25 22:02:02 UTC
A nice way to handle this would come together with #20530.

On the other hand, I know what's causing this in the current setup that messes with the index on every operation.

This appears to be fixed with the new libgit2sharp provider. Changing milestone.

I have tried but not sure how to reproduce this issue at my end.

Could you please provide me steps so that I can reproduce and verify this issue at my end.

1. Checkout a repository.
2. Rename a file.
3. Review and Commit and see that the old name appears as deleted (red X), new one appears as added (blue +)
4. Rename it back.
5. Review and Commit and see that there are no changes.
