          windows to be tiled.  [Christopher Bratusek]

        - Update KDE5 session script, use 'startx11-plasma' instead of
          'startkde' [Christpher Bratusek]

        - Make 'shring-yank' recognise screen edges when shrinking or
          yanking windows, when the window crosses screen edges [Michal

        - Fix compilation with GCC10 [Kim B. Heino]
             x allow overriding 'build-info' build time, hostname and
             x avoid recreating theme tarball for every single file (the
               old code was erroneously recreating theme tarballs for
               each file contained thus calling 'tar' over 200 times to
               create 8 tarballs)
             x make 'DOC' file reproducibly
             x other improvements to make builds reproducible

        - Explicitely check for 'rep' binary, not just 'librep-dev'.
          [Christopher Bratusek]

          5 if actually requested by user.  [Christopher Bratusek]

        - Revert commit '6ad175d835aee85179259d7c02b3be152d3e4b86', "The
