I have the GIMP and Blender source code and it seems to me like there’s a lot of unnecessary files.
Are all these files included in the downloads really necessary to the build process?
I know there’s licenses and readme’s, that’s obviously necessary, but what about all the rest?
Sometimes there’s a Visual Studio workspace/or project file, does that have all the source code?
And then you can navigate the folders and find the files without any sort of IDE project file, just by themselves.
I assume that’s for building on linux and such?
