Should clean revert everything to pristine source?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
On many of my packages, the "configure" phase modifies some files
The lines which are overwritten are totally irrelevant: they reflect
the particular set-up on which the upstream developer has packaged the
Upstream's clean target don't revert those changes. If I don't do
anything specific, those files appear in the diff.gz file which can be
considered clutter. If I want to do avoid this, I need to clutter the
rules file instead or to use a patch system.
Which attitude is best? Is there a clear policy or consensus ?
