Chris Brody created CB-12398:
--------------------------------

             Summary: Update users guide to document which application artifacts to include/exclude
from git
                 Key: CB-12398
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-12398
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Docs
            Reporter: Chris Brody


In https://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/latest/guide/cli/index.html ("Create your first Cordova
app") it is not clear which artifacts should or should not be committed in git or other source
code control systems. This can lead to lots of confusion. We know that in general the developer
should use the --save flag when adding all plugins/platforms and then exclude these artifacts
from git. But this is not at all clear to new users and I have seen too many projects with
old plugins/platforms artifacts included.

We know that part of the right solution in CB-12008 (autosave plugins/platforms by default
in cordova@7) is in progress. I also raised CB-12397 to add .gitignore to the app generated
by "cordova create". But I would also like to see this documented for new users.
