Re: [cdt-dev] What exactly is CDT core build?

ūüĎć Thanks for all your input. Hopefully it helps Martin in his short term goal and all of us long term.

My conclusion is simply all settings (configuration or preferences) should be in human readable format in a way that works nicely with version control. This is because different teams and individuals have different needs on what should be checked in.

I believe that statement is not new or controversial idea.

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you mean, since I remember that for formatting I have an external xml that I store explicitly in my main projects, and I load it manually in the Eclipses I use for development.

As for code analysis, I remember I evaluated it several years ago, and did not seem ready for prime time, so I have close to zero experience with it.

But, to answer your question, to me they look like configurations, not preferences, so yes, they should not be stored in .settings.
