Description Tomas Mysik 2012-02-13 12:20:56 UTC
Please, add support for Git submodules [1][2]. I can provide more information or even sample repo if needed.

The current state is:
- submodule files look like new files (green highlighting)

I did not try to commit or whatever from the IDE since I am not sure what would happen :)

Comment 1 Ondrej Vrabec 2012-02-13 12:35:45 UTC
same as #207067, the reason for incorrect statuses and failing commands is that .git in submodules is not a folder but a text file with link to the actual .git metadata folder. Our Git support is unable to parse it.

As per comments on the other bug, a .git file of this form is a standard layout supported by and in cases automatically chosen by Git.  Saying NetBeans' Git module cannot support this it is equivalent of saying that the NetBeans Git support is committed to being broken!
