project_name.hw directory in your
Vivado Design Suite project stores information
about custom dashboards, trigger, capture conditions, waveform configuration files etc
created as part of using the Debug and Programming in the Vivado hardware manager. Xilinx
recommends you manage the project_name.hw directory
in your Vivado Design Suite project under revision
control. This also helps if you want to hand off this project to be used in Vivado Lab Edition.
