IMPORTANT - Use version, source control systems for Squish test suites

Using a version/source control system (such as CVS, SVN, Git, etc.) is strongly advised for the Squish test suite folders and the files contained in them.

The advantages of using a version/source control system are:

Squish test suites typically consist of UTF-8 encoded files for test scripts, shared scripts, data files, shared data files, verification point files and the object map file (suite_my_test_suite/shared/names.*).

All these files can be put under revision/source control directly. The changes made to most of these files should be very easy to visualize with every revision control system.
