Did you make any changes to the source?
Either way try with
–allow-untagged true --allow-uncommitted true

as build options

It’s happening because git master contains newer packages than the tag you’re trying to build.

The extraneous files (from perspective of the tag you try to build) are reported. The output of the build script already explains how to remove these.

This removal step isn’t automated since this could wipe out user custom modifications.

I try figure out how to git clone a specific git tag so these extraneous packages issue won’t happen.


Also build 15.0.0.4.9-stable instead. Just previously only 15.0.0.4.9-developers-onlyexisted. Forgot to create an identical tag with the same name.

No good idea for most users. These extraneous packages do not point to any signed (and verified) git commit or git tag. These extra folders could be compromised in transfer.

Only by understanding what causes –allow-untagged true --allow-uncommitted true to proceed it is safe to proceed such as when having manually added/modified files but not committed or added commits on top of when trying to build from non-tagged commits.
