Access credentials =/= project configuration.
You can maintain configuration in a project tree, although i wouldn't
recommend this, but access credentials is just too sensitive to be so careless
about them.
Two things that I can come up with, is
1. Access credentials has no impact on project, other than allowing or denying
it from operating. They can be either right or wrong, you do not really need
to track their changes.
2. It does not change often, in the meaning that you need some SERIOUS reason
to change source URI... i.e. actual deployment of a project, to connect it to
production database.
