No, definitely not. Views are Velocity templates, they're part of your local configuration. You modify them in views/ after installing, and they will not be touched during an upgrade.

No, I would say that's the opposite. We intend that you maintain your customizations in the file system in the location to which you deploy the IdP (idp.home, in other words). It would not be advisable to do it any other way.

Of course you can check your copies of the installed non-system files into a git or svn repository at that point, or mount the files in from some external file system into a Docker image, or whatever.
