Re: [cdt-dev] CDT survey

There should probably be some degree of control over where language setting providers store their data. Our projects use two providers, the standard UserLanguageSettingsProvider and an instance of LanguageSettingsGenericProvider. The data in UserLanguageSettingsProvider is entered by user and is intended to be shared. The data in LanguageSettingsGenericProvider is obtained from our build system and is not intended to be put under source control.

I find this very annoying, too. I liked being able to keep project settings
under version control by putting the .project and .cproject files in version
control. Now I'd have to put the entire workspace under version control...
