by running the Build script on a PC which is not (EVER!) used for development, we can ensure that the application as delivered, is actually in GIT so there's no lost source if a developer's laptop decides to go Bye Bye.

Great idea. I have actually started a FIXCFG program to apply bulk edits to cfg files, much like the refactoring program(s) do to program sources.
