In my projects sofar i've have created configuration files in my packages. I made one development folder and a production folder. In this case i only have to pass the production folder to the next machine in the DTAP process (in theory). And, i thought that MS advised to do this like this. Build in a development environment deploy somewhere else. Even Jamie Thompson best practices says you should put the configuration in the projectfolder (so i did).
Now i've some interesting (in either case for me). the package configuration file is 'connected' in the development environement in the package. When i want to deploy it to the production folder i do a built (bin) and copy it to production folder. But what do i do with the configuration file?
Currently, i point my configurationfile to the production folder but that, i would say, is not very neat. building the package in a development folder, pinpointing to production folder and having a production folder. Am i thinking wrong or what?
Or should i integrate the development folder in the production (project) folder?
