*Definitive* List Of What Beneath .idea Should Live In VCS?

Is there a definitive and comprehensive list of:
1) What files beneath the .idea directory should be ignored by the VCS?
2) What files are advisable to track in VCS?

I have seen other forum threads and there is some advice out on the web e.g:

http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/message/5252427
http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/message/5250065
http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/thread/279596
http://hamletdarcy.blogspot.com/2010/01/sharing-intellij-idea-project-files-in.html

There is a lot of subjective and disparate information on this topic. It would be very helpful to see it all pulled together into a single JetBrains-canonical reference. Is there such a thing already?

Thanks,

Chris

Thank you Dmitry. What is the best way to suggest improvements to this doc? YouTrack, or comments beneath the doc itself?

Comments are probably better.
