Ticket #1859 (closed bug: wontfix)
'make realclean' fails to remove release tarballs

Description (last modified by jkeenan) (diff)
While working on TT #1850 the other day, I had occasion to invoke make release, a command which -- since I have yet to serve as Release Manager -- I had never previously invoked.
make release left me with the following files in my working directory:
parrot-2.10.0-devel.tar.bz2 parrot-2.10.0-devel.tar.bz2.sha256 parrot-2.10.0-devel.tar.gz parrot-2.10.0-devel.tar.gz.sha256
The tarballs are, of course, quite large so I would like to remove them. However, I have invoked make realclean may times since then and the files remain. So it's obvious that these files are missing from the realclean target.
Question: Do we want these files to be removed by make realclean. Cet. par., I'd say yes. But perhaps someone who has served as Release Manager might have a different idea.
