Description Gerhard Sittig 2020-09-13 20:45:43 CEST
This goes unnoticed for in-source builds, but becomes obvious for out-of-source 
build configurations. The compilation of sources to create binary executables 
also modifies .ts files in the source tree. Which dirties the sources and thus 
falsifies version information, and is troublesome when several output trees 
reference the same source tree.

How to reproduce:
- get the pulseview source tree, see it matches the checked out version
- create an output directory in a different location, and chdir there
- cmake $SRCDIR && make
- chdir to the source dir, it's not in the state it was in before compilation
