Git hub conflicts

Dear all,
We used a default project template to make our first Katalon project; which we then checked into Git.

We’ve noticed that even browsing around test cases & test suites causes Katalon to change the timestamps in some files inside the repo.

This will cause us lots of merge headaches when we have people just running/looking at the test suites. This is because Git will not simply throw away local changes to the files when a git pull is run.

We would like to know the Katalon recommended approach to dealing with these property files - do we have to include them in source control? If so - how do you recommend we avoid having these merge conflicts all the time? Thanks etc etc
