  I do. First, you need Delphi 5 or higher so that dmf files can be
saved as text. Second, make sure all of your forms are in text, not
binary. To do this, you can right-click on the form and select Text DFM.
If you have many forms to convert, Borland provides a tool to convert
dfms from binary to text and vice-versa. It is named "convert.exe".
Once you are sure every form is converted to text, you can safely store
them as text in CVS. DFM forms set as "Text DFM" never contain binary

  One hint: if you have tabbed controls on your form (TTabNotebook,
TPageControl, etc.), always put the control to the first tab before
saving. Otherwise, you will have a conflict each time you update a form
where someone else left the control on, say, tab 2.
