I build Emacs from the emacs-master.tar.gz file produced by the Git repo and 
after the build I delete both the build tree and the tarball (*), so I do not 
see any usefulness to have the source. If I need it I can read it directly 
online from the Git repo, and if I need it to change something and test  I can 
download it. BTW, I often build without debug info so why should I have the 
need of source? Why you insist in creating "user-developer"?  Do you really 
think all user of a software product aim to read it source to understand how it 

Please, let me know how to disable this if installed on master...


(*) Really I start to build on GNU/Linux Mint where the tar.gz is downloaded. 
Then I build for this OS and do also a nox build to be installed on WSL. Then 
the tar.gz is transferred on the Windows partition where a Windows build is 
done for W10 Pro 64. the result is installed also on a W10 Home 64.
