ID .gitignore entry ignores "id" locale (for mac)
59 bytes, text/x-review-board-request
There's currently a .gitignore entry of "ID" that is generated by idutils and actively used today but causes problems with git on mac because `[core] ignorecase = true` for "id" locale (Indonesian Bahasa Indonesia). Standard8 added the .gitignore unignore entry for screenshots see 1346825 comment 15. I added one for activity stream in bug 1419601 after forgetting to update it in bug 1413550. That forgetting has resulted in almost 3 weeks of Nightly 58/59 being broken for "id" users and about 1 week of Beta 58 so far (although the next beta build 58.0b6 is after US Thanksgiving, so it'll be broken for about 2 weeks). Ideally we avoid these types of failures more generally maybe by scoping .gitignore ID to directories that might be used with idutils. bz from irc: > There are people who use idutils with Gecko/SpiderMonkey, yes > I mean, their generation is not an automatic process, but it sure does make searching nicer in some cases > The problem is that the mac filesystem is case-insensitive > I wonder whether we can restrict the ID ignoring to ID in the root and in the spidermonkey root > It's hard to say where else people might decide to run idutils...
