It is a battle that needs a lot of efforts for not so many rewards, so I just leave them alone. However, I could probably just add a few parameters to the "git archive" command within openstack-pkg-tools, so that it would *always* get rid of them. The issue I had was, however, with the .gitreview. Indeed, since the packaging of OpenStack also uses Gerrit, the .gitreview file is needed. That's not a problem with Stretch (since it ignores it by default), but it was when backporting to Jessie. The solution is to add: extend-diff-ignore = "^[.]gitreview$" in debian/source/options, so that there's no error with diff in that file when building (this isn't needed for >= Stretch). Apart from that, no problem with other upstream files. Cheers, Thomas Goirand (zigo)
