Our team has a Mercurial repository, and is in the process of switching from using Tortoise to SourceTree as the GUI client. I'm finding that when I commit in SourceTree (v126.96.36.199 for Windows), it automatically adds all untracked files to the repository, whereas in Tortoise the files remained untracked until/unless I explicitly added them to the repository.
I'd prefer that SourceTree not add new files to the repository automatically, but I cannot figure out how to disable the default auto-add behavior. Therefore, my question is:
Q: Is it possible to configure SourceTree to refrain from adding new files to the repository on commit, by default?
Thank you, in advance.
From a bit of web searching, it appears that "staging" is a Git feature without a (built-in) equivalent in Mercurial. That said, I'm pretty new to all of this and could easily be wrong. Is there a staged/selected option in SourceTree when using Mercurial?
