I created a git repository and added all my source code files to the project. I am using Sourcetree for Windows. Lets say the source code folder as X
Now there is a new design file foo.xml that resides in another windows folder (Lets say Y). This is not a source code file but another design file that needs to be in Y folder for logically organizing all project artifacts.
I need to add the foo.xml file to the version control, I want it to be a part of the existing project repository.
All help, suggestions, guide is welcome.
You can do it .... but I wouldn't :)
See https://stackoverflow.com/a/8626989 for an example of how you can tell Git to manage an external folder, but it makes life very complex when cloning, ignoring etc.
Other than that you can symlink ?
If I really had to try and do something like this I might be tempted to put all the constituent parts in to standalone repositories and then have a parent Git repo which includes all of the others as submodules?
