Well, on the first hand the .res files created by the IDE are auto
created, so theoretically you don't need store them in VCS.
On the other hand the res file in the a source directory, which
might be readonly, then the res should be in VCS.

I'm not sure if the format is totally platform independent.

But of course you can put platform dependent values in it, which will
fail to be converted. For example a path C:\test can not be
converted to Linux.

A merge conflict means that both files were altered at the same place
in different ways. Or that you use incompatible diff/patch tools.
