GitBlocks to keep most of it working under Windows 10

It builds and show status menu option works. Most of the other options have at least been partly tested.

If no project is open than using this plugin currently crashes the CB IDE.

Hi Tim,

I tested the plugin in Linux wx3.0, it works fine. I've created pull request https://github.com/stahta01/GitBlocks/pull/1 with project file. Could you please check?

Thanks,
Christo

This is the first time for me to process an PR; I think I did it right.

Uhm, well... not really :P.

The history looks like you cherry-picked the commit, that was the worst option (does the GitHub UI even offer that option?). In general you perform a merge, for external contributions i prefer to always enforce a merge, even if like in this case a fast-forward merge would have been possible.

Also, it is kind of bad practice to create a PR from the main branch, in general you make a feature branch and create a PR from that one.

Thanks for the feedback; I will do it manually next time; I dislike git merges.

So, next time I will do a manual commit and see if it works better or it works worse.
