Hi Kevin,

No this is just a cache of footprint library properties so that we can index and search footprints without loading them all into memory. It’s entirely for performance.

User question:

Should the project-level cache file be included in the SCC
respository, or is it rebuilt as necessary?

Currently the cache file holds both project and global libraries. Thus it leaks your system setup information and should be in your .gitignore file for the project. It is rebuilt when missing.
