os: kubuntu 10.04
in my settings
FILE -> SETTINGS -> PROJECT SETTINGS -> VERSION CONTROL -> IGNORED FILES
I have added the directories .idea/ and compile/ to the ignore section. Im understanding that this will mean that the version control system (git) should not include these files.
But when i right click on the main project folder and choose GIT -> COMMIT DIRECTORY I get this:
the /.idea/ and the /compile/ directory are both there with check marks waiting to be committed. Is this correct? and if so what is the point of adding stuff to the SETTINGS -> VERSION CONTROL -> IGNORE area.
