Anything that lends itself to a direct diff/cmp is a good choice. E.g.:

Great! Do you have a JIRA filed for this by any chance?

Well, it took me some time to find out how to run it. This is not a huge
deal, but anything you can do to reduce surprise (like a lot of folks here,
I expect gradle rat to do the right thing when I run it from the top level)
will help you get more folks review your release quicker. IOW, this is not
about some kind of a policy, but rather making your source code base
friendly to reviewers (and users!).
