This week I have continued working on the reproducible timestamp
approach through the exported variable SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH.
I submitted a bug for debhelper with last week's patch (I had already
commited a fix exporting SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH in our local git repo, and
uploaded the package in our local repo):
I submitted bug to Debian for libxslt to honour SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH:
I also commited the fix to our git repo and puloaded the package our
repo to perform tests:
After the upload, test were performed on the packages affected by issues:
1- timestamps_generated_by_docbook_to_man (here some packages where
- there where 79 unreproducible packages and 39 became reproducible
- there where 89 unreproducible packages and 33 became reproducible.
NOTE: there are still packages generating docs with libslt not
reproducible. This is because the patch for dh to export
SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH only works for calls to doc generation under dh. Some
packages have the calls to generate docs directly in debian/rules so
SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH is not set there. A solution needs to be found for that.
I updated some info in the wiki/ExperimentalToolchain regarding packages
using the SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH proposal.
I tagged some packages affected by
I started working on the issue lc_messages_randomness:
I'll continue working on that next week.
