I found a topic referring to a page which specified which .idea files are supposed to be under source control and which not. From what I understood only workspace.xml should be avoided. However, after reloading my 2.7.1 SDK to pick up some additional eggs, misc.xml also changed the path of <component name="ProjectRootManager"> for the python.exe location. At work it's on a different drive than at home.
So, is this an oversight about a mutable being in this file or should misc.xml not be under source control?
