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)

        .recommenders/index/http___download_eclipse_org_recommenders_models_luna_/_5.fdt
        .recommenders/index/http___download_eclipse_org_recommenders_models_luna_/_5.fdx

        .recommenders/index/http___download_eclipse_org_recommenders_models_luna_/segments_6

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

Here is my .gitignore file:

*target*
*.jar
*.war
*.ear
*.class

# eclipse specific git ignore
*.pydevproject
.project
.metadata
bin/**
tmp/**
tmp/**/*
*.tmp
*.bak
*.swp
*~.nib
local.properties
.classpath
.settings/
.loadpath
.recommenders/

# External tool builders
.externalToolBuilders/

# Locally stored "Eclipse launch configurations"
*.launch

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?
