I'm moving from SVN to Git, started just two days ago. I'm amazed with
Git so far, also using it with SVN solid.

I'm having few difficulties setting ident attribute:

1) Setting it for a whole directory. I tried .git/info/
attributes, .gitattributes in root of my project, I tried some
patterns ( app/*, app/, app* ), nothing work so far. Using app/* works
for files placed in app folder but I need to apply this attribute for
a whole directory (recursively).

2) If applied correctly, will it work with files that already exists
in project ?

3) What I need to do so that changes (replacing $Id$ with hash) will
show in all affected files ? I found some tutorial, where author
applies this as rm file; git checkout -- file. But how should I
proceed for a whole project ?
