RE: versioning generated files

We keep some precompiled binaries in subversion for just the reason that it can be time consuming and/or difficult to compile certain libraries. The key here is to have clear policies on which binary files can go into the repository, because you dont want to see all the experiments your collegues are making. So we are doing it only for the released version of some rarely changing libraries.

Some of my co-workers are experimenting with ccache (http://ccache.samba.org/) to reduce compile times, but we are not yet sure if ccache is causing some problems.

Hi!

I'm facing a problem which I'm not 100% sure how to tackle. The thing is that from a purists point of view, only the source files belong under versioning control. From a pragmatic point of view though, it might be difficult, time-consuming or even impossible to re-create some files from source and therefore it is sometimes reasonable to store generated stuff under version control.
