Ummmm... I don't see what this has to do with the subject line or the
previous discussion (hint: when you want to ask a question, compose a new
message, don't reply to an existing one), but the answers are no and no,

The developer can re-add the deleted file and commit it.

*BUT*! There is a related issue that you must fix first. Your developers are
not communicating with each other - why is one developer deleting a file
that another one considers important? You should fix that problem *now*,
before any critical work gets lost.
