I don't think we really need to resolve conflicts at all. What we can
do is simply to re-run the scripts against tip/master whenever you
want the update.

I have created a 'for-tip' branch at
which is a re-run against the most recent tip/master. (The previous
link was against something rather old like -rc6.)

I am not sure this is what you wanted. In either case, re-running is
not a problem, and neither is excluding a set of files. Please do this
with as little pain for yourself as possible. The purpose of the
script is to avoid manual work.

Also, by the way: Can -tip now be cloned with --shared to save space
as long as I only have branches with references to commits in
tip/master? Or is this still to be considered unsafe?
