(not a dev opinion) To me it is quite important to be able to check
out a project, set it up in my env and start looking at what I'm
interested in. Configuring the IDE is a task that sometimes may take
quite a few steps and so I usually find it beneficial to have it
already available. However, you should be aware that some IDEs are
having different configuration files that are shareable and some that
are not sharable (f.e. IntelliJ IDEA .iws are not sharable).
