JENKINS_HOME is (something like) /var/lib/jenkins
In there, there is jobs directory, in it a subdirectory for each job. In each job subdirectory, you have
config.xml plus the builds subdirectory.
I would like to somehow separate my config.xml from the same file structure that contains builds so that I can check them in my version control but to not clutter its view by having all the build logs that each execution writes. If I change a job config, the corresponding config.xml is changed and I can (actually in a Jenkins job) check it in my version control automatically or if I change it manually in a text editor, it gets checked out and deployed. But I don't want the builds in the version management.
Is there a way to separate just the job configs from the build logs in the filesystem?
