The last time I used tortoisegit it didn't support whitelist or blacklist patterns. I couldnt say ignore these generated files (such as objects) which was annoying when I have several dozens projects and folders that I'd like to commit.

What git gui app has the ability to specify blacklist or whitelist file patterns?

I don't think it support a special dialog box for it, but it will respect the .gitignore files you will commit.
Those simple text files can define the whitelists or blacklists you want.

+1 .gitignore is the way to go. – Sathya Dec 1 '10 at 16:44
+1, although .gitignore files aren't needed to be committed to work. In fact you can gitignore a .gitignore file. – whitequark Dec 1 '10 at 20:26
