Some case insensitive patterns in .gitattributes ignored by sourcetree?

jorrit-de-vries June 9, 2020

Hi,

For projects I use a .gitattributes file which contains lines for defining file extensions which should be tracked by LFS. It looks like:

*.[pP][nN][gG] filter=lfs diff=lfs merge=lfs -text
*.[tT][iI][fF] filter=lfs diff=lfs merge=lfs -text
*.[fF][bB][xX] filter=lfs diff=lfs merge=lfs -text

*.[tT][aA][rR].[gG][zZ] filter=lfs diff=lfs merge=lfs -text
*.[zZ][iI][pP] filter=lfs diff=lfs merge=lfs -tex

I do this, as some applications spit out files with uppercase extensions, and some lowercase.

But the last 2 patterns are not working in sourcetree (maybe more won't work, but haven't checked everything); sourcetree shows a dialog window which states .zip files not being tracked by LFS, with the option to Cancel or to Add anyway. Everything works as expected using the command line tools, haven't checked if I just Add anyway if things goes well...

Is there some setting in sourcetree which prevents using some of these patterns? Or is this is a bug in sourcetree?
