I don't know how this is supposed to work. I ran 'git reset --hard'. When I viewed the top level with git log, the newest date was April 10. Seemed okay to me.

After my previous two builds and testing I wondered whether that truly reset the source files. I changed to the tdebase directory and again ran git log. The most recent commit was from a few days ago.

So I did a git reset there too and in tdelibs.

In light of this, I don't think my previous build runs and tests were credible because more than likely I was building at least tdelibs and tdebase with recent sources.

There must be a way to correctly reset my sources so I build with the sources from that date and ignore all commits thereafter. I love wasting my time.
