Which module files and folders can safely be deleted?

I try to reduce the number of files in my puppet repo, so checkouts and general repo handling gets faster and less polluted. Many modules from PuppetForge come with some files unneccessary for production use. So far, I guess I can safely delete stuff like

  • CHANGELOG.md, README.md, CONTRIBUTING.md, LICENSE and other files from the github repo (*.md, *.markdown)
  • all folders except /manifests, /files, /lib, /facts.d and /templates

Is that correct? Are there more files I can safely delete? Is there some automatism to do this?
