Subject: Re: [PATCH 0/1] Allow the 'revert' option in Git Gui to operate on untracked files, deleting them
Date: Tue, 29 Oct 2019 15:25:04 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAPSOpYsA9n6Y1vH1_+vRTCV7Mrvox4L2LpQmpXBnpH8ke0yDhQ@mail.gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <CAKPyHN3WEpVLnxYN5FsovW3G_borc+YrF05Npr0Wyvv6YhbcaQ@mail.gmail.com>

That's kind of neat, I wasn't aware of that facet of Git Gui :-) But,
it isn't quite the same feature:

* It has to be manually set up on each installation.
* It invokes an external process, I don't know if it's safe to assume
that "rm" will work on all platforms (though I just tested it on my
Windows installation and it worked).
* It doesn't remove directories that it makes empty.
* I don't see a way to bind it to a keyboard shortcut. That could just
be me not knowing enough about custom tools, though. :-)
* It only processes the first file selected.
* If I select a tracked file, it will still delete it, and the feature
I'm looking for is more of a "return repository to clean state" type
function, like "revert" already is but extended to handle files that
you can't actually "git revert".

Thanks,

Jonathan Gilbert
