Hmm, better removed (I just did that). That EXTRA_DIST business needed to be 
there in the autotools days to get them into the distribution tarball. Using 
the createtarball script they end up there w/o further action:

There are two things: git for the revision control and createtarball to craft 
the source package for distribution.
