Sorry about that. Should be fixed now.

Anyway, given the (in)frequency with which our repositories are pushed
to I wonder if it makes sense to drop the daily git snapshots in favour
of the source tarballs created by our CI setup on every push.
# Sometimes weeks go by without a commit ;-)
The git snapshots are *not* the same as the source tarballs. The former
are the result of
git archive --format=tar --prefix=sane-backends-$(date +%Y%m%d) master
whereas the latter are the result of
So the latter are equivalent to what we eventually release.
How easy/hard would it be to change things on your end to use the CI
source tarballs? Should I submit an issue for that on GitLab?
Hope this helps,
