Anyone familiar with the way that CCS creates and utilizes it's project files (xml files, files with tilde ~)
We are implementing Github as source control for our projects.
We are trying to figure out which files (if any) can be safely ignored by the source control.
git can use a file called .gitignore for this purpose - but I have not been able to find any examples of this file for CCS. I'm hoping that with your help I can create such a file and share it with other CCS users. Maybe also a small tutorial for working with github...

The file 'mydb_cache.xml' is always being updated by CCS. Would this file be automatically be updated by CCS if it were old but the rest of the code updated? What about other _cache or _DataDictionary xml files?

When saving a project - I see that CCS creates some (temporary) files that start with a tilde (~), if I make a change in file abc.html, CCS also creates the files ~abc0.html and ~~abc.html. Does anyone know the purpose of these files and if they can be ignored by source control? If yes, would it be safe to ignore ALL files that strat with a tilde?

Thanks in advance...

As far as I know, the 'cache' XML files are for local caching of the DB schemas etc, and so would probably be regenerated anyway.

The ~abc.html are, I believe, temporary files when you are editing or previewing files (happy to be corrected but I get them usually when previewing or working on a page)

I have my projects in SVN and usually add 'ignore' to very few files so I'm not left with "where is that one small very important file" that CCS needs.
