Besides not being able to add another project to the same git repository, is there any other reason to not create a git repository (.git directory) inside an Eclipse Project folder? Currently my project directory structures look like this (with a .git repository inside it):

MyProject
  .git
  bin
  src
  .classpath
  .project
  .gitignore

Should I place the git repository outside the project folder?

Thank you.

Marcos

I think that covers it.

Yes.


Why? What's the advantage of that?

Others say I don't have any reason to do so:

You already listed one, that's enough. One-project repos are rare so it's better
to stick to something familiar.

My git repository is inside my project folder, but my project folder is not inside the Eclipse workspace. So no problem to me. Also, I will never have the need to add another project to this particular repository.
