Thanks for the bug report!
I think we could chop off "2>&1" as that would have exposed the
Another way to go would be to use verbose git-add and grep for
the string "add '$sm_path'".
if test -z "$force" && ! git add --verbose --dry-run
--ignore-missing "$sm_path" |grep "add $sm_path"
git-add already gives the correct (the same error message) for the
ignored files, so maybe we'd just do:
# no need for a if, but this single line will do:
test -z "$force" && git add --dry-run git.o >/dev/null || exit 1
