Subject [Projects New] Why are output files stored in SVN?
Date Sun, 12 Jul 2015 15:58:29 GMT
Why does projects new need to store changes to the files it generates in SVN?

AFAICT, all (or nearly all) the files are generated from data that is
already in SVN.

There are perhaps a few files that contain historic data that is not
otherwise available.
These could be stored as template files in SVN in case the working
files need to be regenerated.
But otherwise, I don't see the point in storing changes to derived data in SVN.

We should be striving to reduce data duplication, not increase it...
