Subject Re: [PATCH] Added maven.log, .project and .classpath into .cvsignore
Date Thu, 14 Aug 2003 23:42:25 GMT
I think you could argue that in general, .log files are something which  
are generated by running programs (in much the same way that, say,  
file.o files are generated by the compiler) and something that you  
wouldn't want in a CVS server at all.

I also think that it's very unlikely that you'll want to keep a  
maven.log in a file anyway.

Of course, bear in mind that the Attic are  
there-was-a-log-but-we've-deleted-it-from-CVS anyway, so there's only  
really two log files, and both of those are in the 'examples' directory.

You might like to check with merlin, but if they're cruft they may want  
to delete them as well :-)
