Can you explain what this means?

Hard to act on this bug with this little information.
Comment 2 Alex Sinm 2012-05-21 03:06:52 UTC
For example some steps to reproduce:

1. Make some changes in source file using MonoDevelop
2. There is "edited" icon overflow over changed file in solution explorer
3. Do git commit in terminal or via some external git UI
4. There is still "edited" icon overflow over changed file in solution explorer and no visible way to refresh this state before i quit monodevelop

Working on this now
Comment 4 Alan McGovern 2012-06-29 18:40:04 UTC
This issue affected all version control addins. It should be fixed in git master and will more than likely be in the next release.
Comment 5 Alan McGovern 2012-09-07 11:28:35 UTC
The approach I took ended up being too slow on large repositories (such as MonoDevelop itself) and had to be disabled. We need to look into alternative ways of fixing this issue.

Commit e77ed7071b disabled the fix.
Comment 7 Lluis Sanchez 2013-07-03 04:20:40 UTC
The solution pad has a Refresh command in the context menu.
