Versioning best practices

Hi,

I have a question. I'm using SVN, and I would like to know if it's a good practice versioning only my qvw files or if I should versioning my prj files too. What do you recommend?

Regards,

Ideally, you would version your prj directory and not your qvw file. This will give you the ability to diff between versions. However, QV can be a bit "chatty" in it's updates to prj files and this can be frustrating. So some people prefer to just check in reduced qvws only. You don't get diff, but you get history and attribution.

Hi Rob,

does SVN checks only script modifications or also objects modifications (like expressions, dimensions...)

The prj files contain all object definitions. So yes, dimensions, expressions -- all object properties are managed by source control.

Excellent document here
