For the most part, those are being left out of my proposed patches unless the project team specifically requests their inclusion. My patches are focused on the far more static files - policy.json if it exists (yes, the policy-in-code will remove those in time), api-paste, rootwrap.conf and the rootwrap.d contents. As far as I know none of these are auto-generated. If they are, I’m all ears to learn how!

Ah, yes, I was talking about oslo.config files but those other files
are more static and shouldn't present the same issue.
