    Description

      Native git should be supported because:

      • JGit inevitably lags behind native git, e.g. support for "gitattributes" [1] took over 7 years, and there's still no support for "git worktree" [2] and "includeIf" [3]
      • JGit's lack of support for certain features leads to unreliable/surprising behavior and possible data loss, e.g. [4]
      • NetBeans lags behind JGit (and quite a lot by now, see NETBEANS-519), because it needs to upgrade the bundled JGit

      Due to the unreliable behavior, this is a Bug to me, not a New Feature.
