These files are generated so making them available to download via git would
mean checking them in to git, which is unnecessary and undesirable. The daily
snapshots are designed to mimic a released version and include those generated
files, so that's really the package for your situation. It's only 2.5 MiB long
as well. Why is this not desirable from your viewpoint?
