That's right. I have a feeling my writing not always match my ideas.

This discussion have spanned both Commit and Add dialogs, with new
files and source controlled files. One of the problems discussed is
that new files are not always ignorable, and that is someting I hope
can be fixed.

A feature not always working appears broken. For some users it means
it is broken, for others it becomes a source of annoyance.

So, is it possible to: Let Tortoise remember the applied ignore
patterns from the context menu, perform the add or commit operation,
then apply the ignore patterns?
