@User: We have a script in the repo that generates the skywater-pdk from sources that will zero the datestamp in GDS files; that's for the same reason: That it is effectively impossible to write the same GDS twice because the timestamp will get updated. Then, the git scripts will see a modified binary and do a wholesale replacement of something that should not have changed. That was particularly troublesome in skywater-pdk because the repository is already so large. But caravel effectively has the same issue. So I will see about copying that timestamp modification script to open_pdks and see if we can use it within the openlane and/or caravel scripts to keep the repository sizes from going ballistic.
