I have been saving a series of database export files each time I do a git commit of my Drupal site. I have a nice git repository for my site files and a messy folder for my database backups. Because the database file is related to a commit, should the database file be included with the Drupal site files (in a temporary folder of some kind?) It seems helpful to bind these files together in a single commit. However, this practice does not seem commonplace, so there may be a problem with it. Have I overlooked a major issue?
If so, would it be better to create another repository for my database backups?
