I have maven project with multiple module. I have also enabled the integration with version control with p4. When I open the project using the pom.xml, it generates the .idea folder and creates punch of Maven_*.xm files. IntelliJ prompt to add these files into scm or automatically add them into scm for checkin. I never want to add these files since it is very specific to IDE and it can be regenerated again from pom.xml. Adding or prompting Maven_*.xml into SCM is very annoying and I did not find any option to ignore these files, anyone knows how to ignore these files for scm. It is similar to excluding all target/* from scm. BTW, I don't want to create file, .idea/.p4ignore and checkin into perforce. This is just purely intellij problem not p4.
