SE does not retain change to GIT executable path
« on: March 07, 2019, 10:21:07 pm »
I'd prefer to not store the SE project, workspace meta data inside the GIT repo containing the code I'm editing in SE.
Thus I did TOOLS->OPTIONS->Tools->Version Control->Version Control Providers->Git and change

Git executable from: /opt/bb/bin/git
                        to:  /opt/bb/bin/git -C %rp

However, the tool does not remember the change. And since the SE project/workspace files are in a different directory
that the code under GIT control, we'll need a -C argument somewhere. Editing vunxdefs.e doesn't help.

This option requires the executable to be a valid filename.  I'll have to look at a way to add support for -C in.

I can put something in for the -C option, but first I want to better understand how you project and works space are set up.  Can you explain this a little?

TIA
