.iws files and configurations

Currently the 'Configurations' are stored in the .iws file. (I.e. the
configurations to run various targets which appear on the main tool bar
Alt Shift F10) This is the same file that holds information on which
windows you currenlty have open, etc.

We would like to see these moved to a file that is shareable among a
development team.

Does anyone know if this has been suggested before or if this might be
done in the next IntelliJ version?

I asked that a long time ago.

I definitely share your opinion regarding the need for what you ask. I
originally asked to put the run/debug configurations in the .ipr (back
in the days when there were only ipr and iws files, no iml), but that
could go in some other file.

We always save our iws files in the source control system even though it
is obvious it doesn't make sense for anything else but the run/debug
configurations.

Here's my original (quite old) request.

May be this will get some support now and happen.

Heh I think I've filed a duplicate or two about this one. Yes I think
things like run/debug configs, and ant task run before run/debug things
like that should all be carried with a project, not in iws.

It would be nice if these configurations could be transferred between
developers using the File | Export Settings ... and File | Import
Settings ...

They are in Irida. You can export everything it seems.
