Problem: some files are ignored when merging two branches on GitHub

I work in eclipse with maven project with submodules. In the branch XXX on GitHubi have the last working project. In the master i have the same project but files like .classpath, .project, .settings(folder), .gitignore and so on are Missing. When i’m making a merge, those files are not added into master. WHY?

P.S. there is a suspicion that somebody marked those files as untracked, but how can i resolve this problem?

Hi @moldoteck,

In order to best help, I think sharing the repo in which you’re experiencing this issue would be really helpful. If it’s a public repo, can you share a link here in this thread? If it’s a private repo, I’d recommend reaching out to private support to get further help.
