Is it not a violation of the GPL to commit generated files? Do we have the
necessary scripts for anyone to regenerate them, with "anything that is
normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which
the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the
executable" (last time I checked, VisualStudio was not part of Windows, by
the way)

This also does not seem to be in the spirit of the license.
