Storing IDE-specific files in the SVN repository
I would like to be able to store the Eclipse-specific IDE files in the SVN
repository. This makes checkout easier and allows for things like storing
code formatting preferences in the repository so that Eclipse users have
things work out of the box.
I know the reluctance to doing stuff like this, so the idea I had was to
create a folder under the"developer-resources" folder of the repository for
this. It would keep it out of trunk and I would just use the svn:externals
feature to pull the trunk code in on checkout. So an Eclipse user could do
a checkout from this folder and it would give them everything all setup out
of the box and ready to go.
This would also make it easy to see what exactly the Eclipse-specific files
are and possibly let them live in trunk later if they do not look too
onerous to everyone.
