TlL;DR: Can I specify a minimum version for IntelliJ IDE through a file in the repository?
I am looking for ways of checking that developers are using an up-to-date version of IntelliJ. This is intended to police laziness/ignorance rather than malice, so I am not concerned particularly with the system being straight forward to work around.
I do not have control over developers personal systems, however I do have control over the git repository and as such can add policing through that.
I have to potential approaches:
1. Force a minimum level through configuration files and check that the version never gets older. (I would be responsible for setting a minimum version)
2. Insist that IntelliJ logs its running version and insist that any commits are newer than a particular version.
Thankyou in advance!
