I'm having an issue with using Git TFS through Parallels with a repository that contains files starting with a dot, vis
I'm using Parallels to run a Win8 VM on a Mac. I've got /users/ben/source mapping automatically to Z: in the VM so I can use Git TFS and other Windows trickery on a repo containing a Xamarin solution which I'm working on natively on the Mac.
I get the following when I try to
git tfs checkin:
add .gitignore Z:\source\client\project\.git\tfs\default\workspace\.gitignore: No file matches. Z:\source\client\project\.git\tfs\default\workspace\.gitignore: No file matches. One item should have been added, but actually added 0 items.
Z:\source\client\project\.git\tfs\default\workspace\.gitignore file does actually exist and is visible when I browse to it using the VM's explorer.
I'm thinking that the fact that the dot files are hidden by the Mac and the folder is shared to the VM is causing this grief, as this setup has been working fine before trying to commit the
.gitignore file. Can anybody verify this and suggest a workaround?
