Hi Trond,

this is not about trust at all.

The Terraform state file is managed by Terraform and should therefore not be versioned by any version control system. It should also be stored centrally to allow the team as well as CI/CD to access it in a secure manner. Secure, because it contains a copy of the state of the deployed environment. Including any kind of sensible data and secrets.

I am happy to have a short chat on this. Just ping me on Twitter or LinkedIn.
