Delphi .RES and version info

From: Miles Izzo <mgi_at_mgi.net.au>

Hi everyone,

Apologies if this has been covered before (I searched the mailing lists
but couldn't find anything that was specific to this).

We are using Subversion with Delphi (version 7 - we started with 2005
but it was too unstable) and we're storing version (ie, build number)
information in the .RES file (which Delphi does automatically). Is there
some 'good' recommended way of using Subversion with these resource
files?

AFAICS, if I commit a .RES file with, say, build 1000 where previously
it was 990 and my colleague commits a build file with 998 (ie, he did 8
builds and I did 10 builds) we will get a conflict. Really, the build
number should go to 1008 (his 8 builds plus my 10 builds) shouldn't it?
Is there any way to make Subversion work well with these (binary) .RES
files? Should I just forget about trying to use them with Subversion?

Thanks for any pointers.
