Why did Forestry add files to my repo?

Why did you add a .forestryio file?

We add a file called .forestryio to the root of your project.

This file notifies Forestry that you have previously published to this location and that it is safe to publish to this location again.

Why did you add a .forestry folder?

We add a folder called .forestry to the root of your project with the code configuration of your site.

This enables developers to edit the configuration of the CMS in their local environment, and keep changes to the configuration in version control.
