Hi Emmanuel,

dh_strip_nondeterminism does the following:

 * Sets the timestamp of every Zip entry to January 1, 1980 (the
   earliest date that can be represented in a Zip archive).

 * Lexicographically sorts the Zip entries by filename, while keeping
   META-INF/ and META-INF/MANIFEST.MF at the beginning.

 * Removes the timestamp comment from Javadoc-generated .html files
   in the Jar file.
