Is it dangerous to make public repo for Pycharm settings sync?


I'm creating a repo to save settings of Pycharm so I can sync to it other machines. I read in the instructions on jetbrains website that the repo should be private, but they don't explain why. Is there any harm in making it public? I reading it and its really just a bunch of xml files.

Thank you.

Hi @A Alsaffar , it would have some security issues if you use a public repo.

For example, you set a web server in `File | New Projects Setup | Settings/Preferences for New Projects | Build, Execution, Deployment | Deployment`, and your web server info like IP would leak to public accidentally.

So please use a private repo here. Nowadays, a lot of Git repo services provide free access to the private repo too.
