    Description

      My team at Dataverse (open source research data repository application) uses Netbeans for development. We lean heavily on the "show annotations" feature to navigate our codebase. We've been wanting to do more code cleanup but major formatting changes destroy our visible history through annotations (the formatting change shows up when we'd rather see the last functional change).

      git-blame which underlies this functionality supports a number of flags for this sort of problem (ignore whitespaces, moved code, etc). As far as I can tell these flags cannot be configured for use by the netbeans integration. Some way to add these flags would provide a lot of value to users with large code bases.
