Wait!  All these files seem to be generated by autoconf and/or
by running ./configure.  They *might* not be supposed to be tracked
(at least **/Makefile -- for sure).  I would ask the fellow developers
about these matters.

Having said that, I'm oblidged to ask again: with the information
you've gained during our exchange, what's wrong with your checkout?
I mean, I suspect we're dealing with an "XY problem" [1].

Well, I just subscribe to the groups I want to participate in and use a
sensible MUA to reply to mails coming from them.

But never mind, if it's hard to reply in line, do whatever works.
