Well not exactly. For every checkout I have to do a number of svn cat's. Well imagine the next developer needs to checkout the project... I have to write him a walkthrouh. That's why I got the idea - if it is added in the properties - then it'll go automatic in every update or checkout and I guess the effort needed for this to be done will be minimal.

Versioning of such files is good, but standing between an year for checkout a single file and days for the nighty build for example - I can live without it
