I haven't had this problem before Eclipse Luna (I updated from Kepler just few days ago).
Although I added to .recommenders to .gitignore it keeps tracking it.

$ git status
On branch master
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.

Changes not staged for commit:
  (use "git add/rm <file>..." to update what will be committed)
  (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)

Untracked files:
  (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)


no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")

Here is my .gitignore file:


# eclipse specific git ignore

# External tool builders

# Locally stored "Eclipse launch configurations"

If I do git rm -rf --cached it removes it, but soon starts tracking again - as soon as my colleague makes changes in his files and push it on Bitbucket and I do pull.
How should I fix this problem permanently?
