Description novakm 2007-12-10 09:58:34 UTC
If you have some file with status Locally New and ignore it, then in Status Window .hgignore appears instead of that
file with status Locally New. But if you invoke Refresh Status, the .hgignore disappears from Status Window although it
is still present on the disk (with right content). Same situation repeats if you unignore that file - .hgignore appears
in Status Window, but disappears again after Refresh Status.

Comment 1 John Rice 2007-12-10 20:43:58 UTC
Can see in:

HgUtils.isIgnored(File file)
if (FILENAME_HGIGNORE.equals(name)) return false;  <-- true if we want .hgignore not displayed in Status Window

We should be returning true if we want .hgignore to be ignored and so not displayed in the Status Window. The problem is
what if we clone a project that has already got a .hgignore

Comment 2 novakm 2007-12-11 10:40:22 UTC
Well I am not sure how should it behave, but definitely not the way it is now. Either the .hgignore shouldn't be
displayed in status at all, or all the time. 
  I've checked how it behaves in CVS and it is displayed all the time, so it should be probably that way too. Another
thing is that it can cause some problems if you commit the .cvsignore and someone updates his project while having new
file with the same name as that one ignored. I guess it would be the same in mercurial... I'll try to test it.

Reopening as .hgignore does not appear after ignoring Locally New file. Not ever after invoking Refresh Status manually.
1) Create new project
2) Initialize hg repo
3) Commit
4) Create new file
5) Ignore it
result: No .hgignore after invoking Mercurial | Status even it is on the harddrive and has right content. 

hg plugin version (at least that is number from plugin manager), probably from 3.1.2008

123735: Correct isIgnored for .hgignore
Comment 9 novakm 2008-02-14 08:54:13 UTC
The only minor issue I see now is that lines in .hgignore are swapped. After ignoring and unignoring the file, the
.hgignore is modified although the meaning of the content is the same.

Before ignore:
after ignore and unignore:
