Description Andrea Pescetti 2017-10-03 22:01:39 UTC
The 4.1.4-RC4 source package contains an unneeded file named
(apparently a clone of config.log)

The file is harmless so this is not a blocker at all, but the cleanup from should be extended to cover this if this is an expected byproduct of the current process.
Comment 1 Andrea Pescetti 2017-10-14 16:22:17 UTC
The 4.1.4-RC5 source package contains another extra file.


It remains to be seen whether these were simply local files created manually by the developer who built the source package or are generated by our current tools/processes.

In any case, this is not a blocker and the content is not problematic (a changelog and a config log).
Comment 2 Andrea Pescetti 2017-12-21 22:18:18 UTC
The 4.1.5-RC1 source package adds to the list of "useless local files that got packaged in the source release" the following:

4.1.5 is available now so can we close it?
Comment 4 Andrea Pescetti 2018-04-22 15:44:36 UTC
We can't close this as the cleanup is not happening yet: all extra files are still there and we need to add them to the blacklist.
Comment 5 Andrea Pescetti 2018-11-08 21:49:09 UTC
The 4.1.6-RC1 source package does not contain "clog" but it contains yet another extra file:


which should still belong to the "local" files generated on the developer machine.
