Yes, of course, I did, so that the 2 trees have the exact same code, aka:

File /r /x sdk "${FOLDER}" which is the code that works.

Sorry, but no...
After 93787b31ab3a5df283f14ef271baadd83a54712c, the code in vlc.git
File /r /x sdk "${FOLDER}"
After f88e58fbf5d5ce0dd67973c92091ac6ba16a96a6, the code in vlc-2.2.git
File /r /x sdk "${FOLDER}"

The conflicting message was dropped from git since quite a few versions

It fixed the documented ticket (15589) and the hundreds of forum
messages that made all the nightly builds unusable since quite a few
months, because "${FOLDER}/*.*" did not preserve the layout.

No, it IS necessary.
As explained quite a few times on IRC, and above.

Sorry, but pushing without testing is not cool...

No, because as I asked several time, you should NOT update g++ on
altair, and move to gcc5, because it breaks the ABI, and we agreed, on
IRC, to do that, after the release of 2.2.2.

Someone updated altair in december, without listening or checking,
breaking the Windows nightly builds. Which is why we need to move away
from manual updates on the altair2.
