It's fairly common to put the conf and hooks directories into a
section of the repository, and make those directories working copies,
which could even auto-update themselves using a post-commit hook.
There is no problem doing this, or storing any other data in your
repository. You would probably not, however, want to store any of the
other files or directories you listed above in the repository, as
that would not make sense.
