Perhaps another strategy might be better:
For each file that is not committed to the repository, create a "sample"
file that contains examples of what the data is supposed to look like,
but that doesn't necessarily reproduce all the data. Then, create a
Makefile rule along the following lines:
if [ ! -f $@ ]; then cp $< $@; else touch $@; fi
This copies the "sample" file to the "normal" file, but not if the
normal file already exists. That way, the bogus sample files should
never overwrite the real data, but at least CI will have processed some
information (I think it's perfectly fine if a CI preview contains some
bogus data). On www-master, the external cronjobs would remain, so there
the website would contain the real data.
