GIT Connected in Creative Cloud Drive - Do they play nice together?

I have successfully connected Dreamweaver for a project where my own files are located in my Document folder.

I am starting a new GitHub Repository for a whole different organization now so it is totally separate from the other one, I know everything plays nice from My Documents, but since we will be using Creative Cloud extensively for sharing graphics files I am considering placing my Dreamweaver files in the Creative Cloud Drive too so the whole project keeps everything in one place. Has anyone tried doing this and do the two play nicely with each other? I know that saving files in Illustrator when located there is a little slower, but no issues other than that. I am hoping the same can be said for DW files.

Dreamweaver is notoriously finicky when it comes to working with files saved anywhere but on the same local drive as the installation.

It may work fine, but I would definitely test out, for a while, before attempting to rely on that kind of workflow.

Thanks for the input. I may skip using Creative Cloud and just use GIT. the use of 'notoriously' doesn't give me much hope that risking using the Creative Cloud Drive would end well. The files will update in GIT just as fast and all team members can use the repository files to get the images without the risks.
