I think you should never check in IDE config files! They will contain user
specific preferences or favours. So this tends to become a commit war or at
least causes trouble if someone commits a change and others update and get
conflicts/merges.
You could provide them as examples with different name/location in the svn,
but you can generate the IDE settings for Eclipse and/or IntelliJ with maven
so there is absolutely no need for having them in svn. Better add some lines
about how to get startet and include the command to generate the IDE config with
maven. Be aware, that if the POM (project.xml) changes (e.g. dependend jars
change), the IDE config can be updated (regenerated) with maven.
This is all about the idea of maven: single point of information.
Avoid having redundancies as you have the dependencies in project.xml and the
IntelliJ settings.
