Thank you for getting back to me on this, though I don't believe the answer you gave correctly explains to me the unnecessary files for VCS.
I understand that the config files under Configuration are necessary to stay in sync, but it would be a complete security hole to store sensitive data unencrypted in any VCS; which means that unquestionably the file ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/DataConfig.config should not be stored in VCS.
I certainly would not want to store my sitefinity 4 license file in VCS either.
Are there any other files that potentially store credentials?
Along with these, as I suggested in my original post, I believe the folders ~/~, ~/App_Data/Logs, and ~/App_Data/Temp are folders which are dynamically generated and are not necessary to compile and run the project; is this the case or are these folders absolutely necessary to compile and run the project?
