I've started Eclipse EGit. In some scenarios it is really not comprehensive.
I have local file e.g. pom.xml changed. On git server this file was changed. I do
pull, EGIt says:
Checkout conflict with files:
i.e. pulling stops (
fetch is done, but not
merge), that is OK. However the next is bad experience.
I synchronize workspace, put my changes aside and make it the same as FETCH_HEAD. But EGit doesn't want to continue. I replace the file with HEAD revision. But EGit still doesn't want to continue.
What standard expected user operation should be with EGit after conflict resolution?
added to index, then
marked as Merged ->
pull still can't pass.
When I select
Merge I get the dialog
I can't commit the file as it is not in list of changed files.
This is the way I solved my problem:
You should be careful while applying this. He says that it might end up saying the branch is up to date, but the changes aren't shown, resulting in desync from the branch.
