Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-02-28 19:27:29 UTC
MonoDevelop doesn't respect .gitattributes for line ending handling, which means that for projects that depend on it heavily, suxh as MD itself, it incorrectly shows many files as 100% modified. Changes to such files would be committed incorrectly, which is a major issue.
Comment 1 Marius Ungureanu 2013-11-19 20:53:30 UTC
This is a limitation in NGit. Not fixable on our side, needs to be resolved upstream.
Comment 2 Marius Ungureanu 2013-11-21 00:38:24 UTC
It depends on https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=9917
Comment 3 Marius Ungureanu 2013-11-26 11:33:18 UTC
Also added https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=301775
Comment 4 Marius Ungureanu 2014-03-04 11:18:59 UTC
It will be fixed when we merge ikvmJGit branch into master.

Is this bug resolved?  I am still getting this issue with Xamarin 5.1.4 (as per duplicate bug 21437).
Comment 7 Marius Ungureanu 2014-07-21 10:12:22 UTC
This will come in a future release. we haven't yet switched to the new git provider.
Comment 8 Parmendra Kumar 2015-05-05 13:49:22 UTC

I have checked this issue and observed that after commit, all changes is successfully updated to git.
Could you please let me know if I have to check anything else to verify this issue? 

Comment 9 Marius Ungureanu 2015-05-05 13:51:54 UTC
You need to:

1. Checkout a repository.
2. Modify files in it.
3. Verify that when opening the files and switching to the Changes panel at the bottom of the document, only the changed lines are colored, not the whole file.
