    We are working on a very large project and using MyEclipse 11.0 with Git as our Version Control. We also have some people using Eclipse Juno with Git. We are noticing that the people using MyEclipse are having a very hard time pushing and pulling from the repository. They get conflicts of some sort almost every time, even if they have not done anything. A few noteworthy examples:
    – One person pushed, and then immediately pulled, and was not allowed to because of a conflict.
    – I pushed several new files, and another person pulled them. Afterwards, they showed up with a question mark on his workspace, signifying that he made them and they were not in the repo.

    Is the problem on our end or is Git not working with MyEclipse 11.0?

    Git works just fine in MyEclipse – there isn’t any team functionality that we interfere with or modify and the eGit plugins are not managed by us.

    1) I would check that you are using the same version of eGit with both Juno and MyEclipse.

    2) Additionally, all I can think of is that you are experiencing actual Git issues due to repository misconfiguration or just incorrect Git handling.
    For instance, the case where you pushed new files and another person pulled them and found them marked new; even if MyEclipse modified the files, they would be marked as unstaged changes, not new files. Furthermore the responsibility of decorating them with the question mark falls on eGit, not MyEclipse (we have no reason to mess with team decorators) Perhaps he did a mixed reset to an earlier commit? I’m not saying that this is the issue, we are using Git ourselves and I know there are, unfortunately, several things that can go wrong, most of these being user errors.

    I hope this helps, please let us know if you have further questions.
