I have a really strange problem which I can't work out. A workmate checked something into SVN, when I updated I had to restart the project because the ipr had been updated, and when restarting it complained about a missing path variable: M2_REPO. In my project file was the following:
The following is also added to my iws:
Which I guess is why the IPR is saying that it's a referenced variable. We don't use Maven, BTW. I thought this was odd, but I just deleted it from my project file and continued. But now every time I delete both the above sections, IntelliJ puts them back as soon as I restart the project. What is going on here?
